About us

ACRI is a world-class cancer research facility with a focus on advancing detection, better diagnosis and treatment methods.

The science of hope

Since its inception in 1998, the Atlantic Cancer Research Institute has evolved to become a leading not-for-profit biomedical research centre in Atlantic Canada, priding itself on its growing, multidisciplinary research team of over 40 researchers, postdoctoral fellows, research associates and students from around the globe.

Research in Atlantic Canada benefits us all.

Research brings innovation and solutions. It is our best ally against cancer. Why not keep our brightest minds in Atlantic Canada and help foster innovative solutions to our cancer challenges?

Having a vibrant, growing research facility in our region with links to universities and private sector is key to building this capacity and attracting world-class researchers to Atlantic Canada. This is how we will find solutions.

Each day, local researchers are working to:

  • Better understand cancer biology.
  • Improve early detection and diagnostic methods.
  • Translate these discoveries as quickly as possible towards patient care.

Together, we can save lives.
