$5M gift toward cancer research creates research chair at UCalgary, expands CCC’s reach

A new $5M gift to the OWN.CANCER campaign run by the University of Calgary, Alberta Health Services, and the Alberta Cancer Foundation will be used to create a new Chair in Psychosocial Oncology. The research chair will be housed at UCalgary’s Arnie Charbonneau Cancer Institute. “The opportunities afforded by this chair will significantly expand the scope of the new cancer centre’s reach to address the diverse needs of pediatric, young adult and adult cancer populations, and encourage new and collaborative partnerships with underserved communities,” said UCalgary Department of Oncology head Dr Don Morris. The funds will also be used to recruit the next generation of psychosocial oncology researchers and clinicians and to create the Daniel Family Foundation Psychosocial Oncology Hub at the Calgary Cancer Centre (CCC).
