DISCOVERY MILESTONES


We have a rich history of discovery and innovation, including Drs. James Till and Ernest McCulloch’s discovery of stem cells at The Princess Margaret in 1961.  We celebrated another major breakthrough in stem cell research when Dr. John Dick identified colon cancer stem cells in 2006.  Milestones such as these reflect the remarkable progress being made in conquering cancer at The Princess Margaret.
