About the Centre’s Research Institutes

Researchers at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre study stem cells, cell signaling, cell biology, structural biology, immunology and immune therapy, molecular imaging, guided therapeutics, genomics, epigenomics, proteomics, and bioinformatics from the perspective of how these areas play a role in the genesis and growth of  cancer.
