Bald for prevention! Bald for a breakthrough! Research is key to the good we can do!
The Childhood Cancer and Blood Research Program conducts research that improves the lives of children and young adults with cancer, blood and related disorders.
The Childhood Cancer and Blood Research (CCBR) Program is a combined program of the Child and Family Research Institute (CFRI), the Division of Pediatric Oncology/Hematology/BMT of the BC Children’s Hospital, and the University of British Columbia (UBC) with close collaboration with the research endeavors of the BC Cancer Agency (BCCA).
The program’s strategic direction is to expand and advance leading edge basic, translational and clinical research as well as to integrate research with patient care. The Program’s diverse areas of research are founded on the need to create an environment of engagement and collaboration.
Funding provided by Balding for Dollars is integral to supporting patient services and clinical research within the Division. Studies involving new therapies, combinations of therapies, biology studies, Quality of Life and behavioral outcome are only a few examples of the types of research that the support from Balding for Dollars fosters. These efforts strive to provide answers for clinicians in their pursuit of clinical excellence as well as return valuable feedback to the research scientists to provoke further exploration into pursuing the answers required for further research into cancer and blood related disorders.
