Gynecologic Cancer Initiative

The Gynecologic Cancer Initiative will accelerate transformative research and translational practice on prevention, detection, treatment, and survivorship of reproductive cancers. This will be done in collaboration with women throughout BC and through synergistic partnering of research institutions, scientists, and clinicians to reduce the incidence and mortality of these cancers by 50% in the next 15 years.
