The Alberta Cancer Foundation supports the cancer biobank in Alberta. Find out more on their new website.

We are impatient for progress. We know there is a need for new and effective treatment options. Together, we can make a difference by investing in Albertas Biobanks.

Where your investment goes.

We have committed to raising $5 million over the next three years to accelerate innovation in Alberta. Samples, and the data they contain, are so valuable to discovery yet we may not realize what it takes to collect, process, store and distribute these priceless assets.

We know how important it is to make smart investments with your dollars, investments that have a direct line of sight to patients.

As modern medical science continues to evolve, the questions medical researchers ask are becoming more complex. In order to find answers to complicated human health questions, researchers need samples to analyze and much data.

Your investment in this biobank is foundational to cancer research in Alberta and beyond. Join us for this invaluable opportunity.
