Our commitment to your professional success


The BioCanRx mission is to build and foster a network that accelerates Canada’s most promising biologically based cancer therapies into clinical trials. This includes providing HQP with opportunities to stay current in the field of cancer immunotherapies, the latest technological advances in knowledge, laboratory techniques and therapeutic manufacturing. The ability to continually update skills is important for personal success and success of the entire field.


We are committed to delivering innovative programs to the BioCanRx network and the Canadian cancer biotherapeutics sector, as well as enabling participation in existing training opportunities offered by others.
