Unlocking the mysteries of cancer and other chronic diseases

Why do people who live in British Columbia have lower cancer rates than those who live in the Atlantic provinces? How can we detect cancer earlier, and reduce the risk of developing the disease?

These are just some of the questions at the heart of an ambitious national project that aims to better understand the causes of cancer and other chronic illnesses. In a national collaboration known as the Canadian Partnership for Tomorrow Project (CPTP), research teams across Canada have recruited volunteers from a wide cross-section of society to participate in a long-term population health study.

Canadian volunteers in national study do their part in fight against cancer and chronic diseases

A new population health study has garnered the unprecedented support of Canadians from coast to coast. The Canadian Partnership for Tomorrow Project (CPTP) has recruited more than 300,000 volunteers to be part of a promising national research platform. Participants have agreed to have their health followed in the coming decades to help in the fight against cancer and other chronic diseases.

National database offers new tool in fight against chronic disease

A new and powerful resource is now available in Canada to help researchers in the fight against cancer and other chronic diseases. The Canadian Partnership for Tomorrow Project (CPTP) is the first national database designed to both document and follow the health of hundreds of thousands of Canadians for decades to come. CPTP seeks to better understand the complex pathways of disease, and is aimed at improving health outcomes for the next generations.

Ambitious new study is a powerful tool in the fight against cancer and chronic disease

Imagine a day when doctors will be able to treat a disease before it develops, perhaps years before any symptoms appear. They would have the tools to intervene well in advance of a disease taking hold and causing damage. It might sound like something out of a science fiction movie, but it is a future many believe is possible with new advances in technology and data collection.
