The Terry Fox Research Institute (TFRI), established in 2007, invests in world-class, collaborative cancer research teams and partnerships. Together with its research and funding partners, TFRI is working to inspire the transformation of cancer research in Canada by bringing together leading cancer research and treatment organizations from coast to coast and empowering them under the framework of the Marathon of Hope Cancer Centres Network.
Our headquarters are in Vancouver. We have regional nodes in Atlantic Canada, the Prairies, British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Quebec.
MISSION & VISION
The Terry Fox Research Institute seeks to advance our understanding, diagnosis and treatment of cancer with the goal of significantly improving outcomes for patients. To attain this goal, the TFRI supports research through a highly collaborative, team-oriented, milestone-based approach.
To allocate its resources, TFRI has international experts evaluate the excellence and the potential for impact of all its research projects. This approach distinguishes our research investment strategy from all others in Canada and allows donors to be confident that their investment is supporting the top 5% of Canadian researchers and their science.
