The Canadian Cancer Society Research Institute (CCSRI) publishes an annual report which provides an overview of CCSRI’s research funding investments and highlights the impact of research funded. Specifically, you will find a breakdown of CCSRI’s investment portfolio, information about CCSRI’s peer review and evaluation processes, a summary of selected research outcomes and impacts, and stories about the impact that funded researchers are making across the country.
ARCC is extremely grateful to be funded by the Canadian Cancer Society, and very proud that multiple ARCC researchers and projects are featured in the 2015 Research Impact Report. Notably, as we previously reported, ARCC-funded work carried out by ARCC Investigator Dr. Lisa Barbera – setting Canadian benchmarks for quality end-of-life care (article link) – was noted as one of 2015’s Top 10 Research Stories of 2015. Other ARCC funded projects featured in the report include work done by Dr. Yvonne Bombard (Perspectives on gene tests for breast cancer) and Dr. Dean Regier (Preferences on genetic test results).
Other ARCC members who have research featured in the report include: Dr. Denise Bryant-Lukosius, Dr. Natalie Coburn, Dr. Paul Demers, Dr. Aisha Lofters, Dr. John Oliffe, Dr. Joanne Stephen, Dr. Sally Thorne, and Dr. Padraig Warde. Congratulations to all for outstanding work completed in 2015!
