It is thanks to the generosity of our participants that researchers can access human biospecimens and data for research.

We have one of the most carefully compiled collections of biospecimens in Canada.


These biospecimens are donated by participants undergoing surgery following a possible cancer diagnosis. More than 90% of patients approached generously consent to donate their biospecimensand data for use in research.
