Cancer Biology & Genetics

The Cancer Biology and Genetics (CBG) division laboratories are occupied by a multi-disciplinary group of 12 principal investigators and approximately 75 graduate and postdoctoral trainees, technologists and research associates. The laboratories, common equipment rooms, student workrooms and investigators' offices occupy the 3rd floor of the Cancer Research Institute and the majority  of the adjoining 3rd floor of Botterell Hall health sciences building, a total of approximately 20,000 sq.ft.

Members of the group are involved in molecular, cellular, genetic and translational studies in various areas of cancer biology, including: drug resistance and metabolism, tumour progression and the regulation of cell growth, and proliferation and differentiation. Research in the CBG division is supported by $3.5 million in external funding from Cancer Care Ontario, the Canadian Cancer Society, the Terry Fox Foundation, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, Cancer Research Society, the Canadian Breast Cancer Research Alliance, the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario, as well as collaborations with the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.
