Publication reports on impact of Windsor Cancer Research Group

Research saves lives, say the members of the Windsor Cancer Research Group.

“Because of research, we now better understand the actions of cancer and ways to protect ourselves from the disease,” the group notes in a report detailing its impact, titled “Bridging Research and Hope.”

The group brings together academics, clinicians, and partners from industry and the community to seek new treatments and develop prevention measures.

The report notes that while advances have a global benefit, additional benefits accrue to local research:

“Research brings cutting-edge infrastructure to the community, delivers the latest innovative treatments to local patients, elevates knowledge of all healthcare providers, and attracts and retains the brightest professionals.”
