Escarpment Cancer Research Institute (ECRI) brings together well-established and successful cancer research groups, as well as emerging groups, from McMaster University, Hamilton Health Sciences, and the Juravinski Cancer Centre. ECRI will be a national leader of innovative and sustainable solutions that will put research into action for the benefit of people affected by cancer.
The Institute has three core programs of research: Clinical Trials, Quality Health Care and Knowledge Translation (‘bench to bedside’) research
ECRI brings together scientists representing many disciplines, including anatomical pathology, clinical chemistry, nuclear medicine, immunology, medical oncology, radiation oncology, surgical oncology, gynecological oncology, nursing, psychology, health policy, cancer epidemiology, and biostatistics. ECRI has an integrated research agenda which encompasses translational research, clinical trials, quality health care and knowledge translation, all focused on the rapid transfer of research to patient care, system design and health care policy.
