Dr. Tak Mak chosen to co-lead Canada Breast Cancer Dream Team

The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation is proud that our esteemed Dr. Tak Mak has been named one of the leaders of the Stand Up To Cancer Canada Breast Cancer Dream Team.

The team will receive funding to conduct clinical trials in six provinces across the country.  The trials will test new treatments including three candidate drugs that have shown promise in halting or slowing the processes by which cancer cells reproduce. This investment offers renewed hope for women with aggressive types of breast cancer.

Breast cancer continues to be the most common cancer diagnosis in Canadian women, and Dr. Tak Mak has devoted the past 15 years of his career focused on finding ways to stand up to this challenging disease.
