Expression for Interest Call is now closed.

At the Alberta Cancer Foundation we are focused on changing the lives of Albertans facing cancer. Every day, we make the most impactful improvements to cancer care in Alberta. Together, we are bringing earlier detection, improved treatments, enhanced quality of life, and prevention strategies to all Albertans so that no matter where Albertans hear the words “you have cancer”, the investments we make today will change their lives.

The Foundation is inviting members of the Alberta cancer research and clinical community to identify specific opportunities and ideas that could be further developed into transformational investments that will improve prostate cancer patient outcomes in Alberta.

Prostate Cancer is the most common cancer in men, with more than 2,300 new patients diagnosed annually in Alberta.

The Foundation is seeking to invest in solutions that improve outcomes for Albertans facing prostate cancer in the areas of early detection, diagnosis and risk stratification of patients. Investments must have a direct line of sight to patients and families and a clear and direct impact on prostate cancer patient outcomes.

Improving outcomes can be by means of any health technology or intervention that can assist health providers and patients make decisions leading to an increase in survival, improved quality of life for patients throughout their cancer journey etc.

The Foundation recognizes that progress towards a cancer free future is being made across multiple disciplines, including medicine, nursing, physics, engineering, psychology, etc. Highly qualified individuals in any area ideally holding an academic appointment at an Alberta University or Alberta Health Services appointment are invited to apply. Solutions with a short time and a clear, plausible path to implementation in Alberta are encouraged.
