Finding new ways to cure cancer

We are an open community of researchers in Edmonton, Canada exploring how cancer develops and can be treated more effectively.

Our Technology, Innovation & Medicine (TIM) Talks are given quarterly. The last event on March 7 featured three talks by cancer researchers and a tour of our new SampleJet robot at NANUC, and was covered by CBC Radio Active, CTV News and Metro News.

We are participating in the Health Festival which features a panel of speakers and interactive displays at the University of Alberta's ECHA building on 114 St and 87 Ave on June 3.

Our members work at the CRINA and collaborate with global consortia to discover new therapeutic agents. We welcome new members and supporters to meet up or join at no cost. Our local partners include AIHS,DiscoveryLab, Edmonton River, NACTRC and NANUC.

Our aim is to design better medicines for patients at lower cost; our ambition is to improve healthcare for everyone living with cancer.

Cure Cancer was initiated by students and cancer researchers at the University of Alberta with support from Alberta Innovates Health Solutions, and a John R. Evans Leaders Fund award from the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) and Alberta Innovates.

The funding for NANUC, a national research facility, was announced in Edmonton by the Minister of Science Kirsty Duncan on March 14, 2016. The press included the CBC, Edmonton Journal and Sun, iNews, University of Alberta and Global News.
