mISSION & vISION
The Gynecologic Cancer Initiative accelerates transformative research on prevention, detection, treatment and survivorship of gynecologic cancers to reduce the incidence, death and suffering by 50% by 2034.
We are dedicated to research that is inclusive of BC’s diverse population, and providing the best care for gynecologic cancer patients, survivors and families that is respectful of their values and differences.
We innovate to drive health care transformation that will lead to new strategies to prevent, diagnose and treat gynecologic cancers, starting right here in BC.
We are committed to world-class and leading edge research that will create solutions and have an impact on patient care today and shape the future of health for women in BC tomorrow.
We facilitate the integration between scientists and clinicians to advance knowledge into care for a diverse population of patients, with the goal of accelerating the pace of change to ‘turn the page’ on the burden of gynecologic cancers.
