Biomarker and Biopsy-Driven Research towards Personalized Medicine

The MCTRC, in partnership with the Quebec – Clinical Research Organization in Cancer (Q-CROC), implements investigator-initiated biopsy-driven translational research, via its clinical research infrastructure. The overall aim is to identify molecular signatures and mechanisms of resistance to particular treatment in the clinical setting. Researchers involved in the biomarker/biopsy-driven research group apply OMIC technologies to look at hundreds of thousands of genes, proteins and other compounds simultaneously to identify biomarkers and molecular signatures associated with disease type, stage and outcome of cancer treatment.
