The Research Institute at CancerCare Manitoba was created in 2015 as a joint initiative of CancerCare Manitoba (CCMB) and the University of Manitoba (UM). It brings together basic discovery scientists from the former Manitoba Institute of Cell Biology (MICB) and clinical, health services, and patient experience scientists from UM and CCMB, all of whom conduct research on cancer and/or blood disorders.
The Research Institute is the most recent stage of a long and proud history of research in cancer and blood disorders in Manitoba.
The Research Institute is governed by an advisory board consisting of members appointed by CancerCare Manitoba and the University of Manitoba.
The Institute has five levels of membership.
