vision to enhance Ontario’s capacity to conduct clinical trials that will change how we diagnosis, monitor and treat cancer patients.

The objectives of the program are to:

1. Support the best translational research and biomarker studies in clinical trials based on science, clinical need and potential for impact.

2. Expand imaging and biospecimen collaborations within clinical trials.

3. Improve clinical trial operations, activities and methods to ensure speed, quality and access through common contracts, budgets, central ethics and SOPs, and research on clinical trial design and best practices.
