Canadian Cancer Research Alliance
CCRA is an alliance of cancer research funding organizations and affiliated partners working together to enhance the overall state of cancer research funding in Canada through improved communication, cooperation and coordination.
CCRA started within the context of the Canadian Strategy for Cancer Control (CSCC), which represents a very broad partnership of Canada's leading cancer organizations that has worked since the late 1990s to create an inclusive, integrated and comprehensive strategy to address the increasing number of new cancer cases and cancer deaths in Canada. The coordinating council of CSCC established eight networks of experts, known as action groups, to identify key strategies and needed initiatives specific to different parts of the cancer control continuum. One of the action groups focused on research, the Research Action Group, which was first chaired by Dr. Philip Branton. Visit their website for more information.
