World Cancer Day: Updates from ACRI
(Moncton, NB) – February 4th, 2017 – World Cancer Day, which takes place every year on February 4th, is an initiative under which the entire world can unite together in the fight against the global cancer epidemic. With research facilities located in Moncton, New Brunswick, the Atlantic Cancer Research Institute (ACRI) is an integral part of efforts of the world-wide scientific community to progress the battle against cancer.
“Breakthroughs in our knowledge of cancer biology are the key that allows innovation to reach the cancer patient.” says Dr. Rodney Ouellette, President and Scientific Director at ACRI. “This new knowledge allows for the development of improved tests for early detection and diagnosis on the one hand, while leading to improved tailoring of new treatments to the individual. We can now say that we are routinely analyzing individual cancer genomes and with our liquid biopsy technologies we are moving towards the real-time personalization of patient care.”
