The new CCTG Strategic Plan: Solving Cancer Together articulates the scientific priorities and required supporting activities that would lead the Group through to 2027. Our new scientific priorities: Understand Cancer Biology, Reduce the Cancer Burden, and Improve Cancer Care with their associated objectives and activities will lead to new advances in innovative therapies, understanding resistance, reduce the burdens of cancer, and show the value of these innovations.
A new CCTG national study has received funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council and Genome Canada to explore the ethical questions raised with emerging cancer technologies like CAR-T cell therapy.
Three CCTG trials were recently awarded nearly $7.5M from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) 2022 Spring Project Grant competition.
The CCTG New Investigator Clinical Trials Course is fast approaching and has already reached the maximum registration. The course will be held August 3 – 5, 2022 in Kingston, Ontario to provide and facilitate investigator education and training designed to educate new investigators from across the country about the essentials of clinical trial conduct in the Canadian research environment.
It was recently announced that ExCELLirate Canada has successfully been granted a Research Infrastructure award of $4,159,049 by the Ontario Research Fund for the Innovation Fund Project Grant "ExCELLirate Canada: Expanding CELL-based Immunotherapy Research Acceleration for Translation and Evaluation".

Cancer is not a single disease; it is hundreds. Cancers of the lung, breast, prostate, and colon are the most common forms of the disease, and account for about half of all diagnoses. But less common forms of cancer also account for about half of diagnoses, and these are not as well studied.
CCTG has launched a patient-centred observational study: SC27 Living With Cancer in the Time of COVID-19: A Cohort Study of the Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Cancer Patients During Treatment and Survivors. The aim of this study is to examine the emotional and physical consequences of living with cancer during this pandemic and the impact it may have on your quality of life and changes in your cancer care and follow-up.
Once the initial shock of a cancer diagnosis wears off, patients and families are left with questions. Lots and lots of questions. It might come as a relief to know that some of the most brilliant, accomplished scientists from around the world are listening.
“The biggest question we ask is the one that all cancer patients have,” says CCTG Scientific Director Dr. Janet Dancey. “What is the best treatment?”
Today we think about cancer in terms of the tumour site—breast, lung, colon, brain, each is separate with different treatments. Precision medicine is a new way of looking at cancer. Instead of focusing on the site of the cancer, it identifies the genetic abnormalities that make cancer possible in individual patients.
