Participate in our Events
Members of APCaRI are involved in a wide range of translational, clinical and discovery research events such as scientific conferences and meetings. These meetings help keep us at the forefront of scientific discovery and application. Our scientists and trainees present posters and give talks helping stimulate interest in the overall program by national and international collaborations
We are also invested in the local and provincial community, reaching out to Albertans through many events tied to fundraising and prostate cancer awareness. We work alongside organizations like the Alberta Cancer foundation, Prostate Cancer Canada, MotorCycle Ride for Dad and Movember to help stimulate fundraising as well as provide the donors with a direct link and people to answer questions about where their donated dollars actually go.
The staff at the Alberta Cancer Foundation have harnessed our group for many events since we have arrived in Alberta.
APCaRI members participate in the 2016 CCI Golf Classic
Members of the APCaRI team felt very fortunate yesterday to participate in the Alberta Cancer Foundation’s 28th Annual Cross Cancer Institute Golf Classic – a wonderful event that has raised more than $12 million to pioneer revolutionary projects in support of patients at Alberta’s own Cross Cancer Institute and beyond.
Over the past 27 years, the Cross Cancer Institute Golf Classic has funded leading edge research, treatment and patient care programs at the Cross Cancer Institute. In 2016, the Alberta Cancer Foundation embarked on a new investment that will bring together the brightest minds in colorectal cancer research to increase survival rates and improve quality of life for colorectal patients across the province.
Heartfelt thanks to the amazing volunteers, the organizing committee, the Alberta Cancer Foundation, and all of the participants!
