British Columbia is ranked among the top five places in the world to be treated for cancer. This is thanks in large part to people like you, who believe that investments in science and enhancements to care can make a significant difference for British Columbians facing this disease. With incredible leaps in science and technology and the generous support of donors, BC Cancer is breaking new ground in genomics, immunology and nuclear medicine. This will lead to prevention in high risk families, better treatments with fewer side effects and ultimately health and longevity for years to come. Below are a few of the areas of research supported by the BC Cancer Foundation.
