New Drug Development

The Princess Margaret, with its world-leading research facility, the Ontario Cancer Institute (OCI), is especially well-suited to excel and succeed in developing new drugs for cancer patients.  That is because the facility is:
  • focused 100 percent on cancer research and treatment, including all types of cancer
  • a world leader in basic science research, and
  • located in a large, multicultural city which provides a large patient base for clinical studies

This article will provide background information on the steps involved in developing a new cancer drug and bringing it to market.  This is followed by descriptions of specific drug development initiatives going on at The Princess Margaret, accompanied by snapshots of the individuals leading this area of work.
