ATP is moving to the new Calgary Cancer Centre
Learn more about our new home in the Calgary Cancer Centre, a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to elevating cancer research
The new Calgary Cancer Centre is slated to open in fall of 2023, and Alberta`s Tomorrow Project (ATP) is proud to be calling it our future home. The building will provide wrap-around care to patients, with everything from diagnostics to treatment and research under one roof. It will be one of the largest comprehensive cancer centres in North America, with a strong focus on supporting innovative cancer research.
“ATP`s goal as Alberta`s largest research study is to support cancer and chronic disease research that could help with early detection and prevention, and better health outcomes for cancer survivors,” stated Dr. Jennifer Vena, ATP`s Scientific Director. “The support from funders, and this amazing new space, will enable us to continue this important work.”
The Calgary Cancer Centre is supported by the OWN.CANCER campaign, a strategic partnership with the Alberta Cancer Foundation (ACF), the University of Calgary, and Alberta Health Services. The campaign goal is to raise $250 million towards improved treatment and care, with $150 million of that dedicated to enhancing research.
“The OWN.CANCER campaign is a once in a generation opportunity that will help establish the Calgary Cancer Centre, and Alberta, as an international leader in cancer research, treatment and care. The campaign, with the support from our community, will take us from great to world class, enabling this centre to reach its full potential.”
