The Marathon of Hope Cancer Centres Network (MOHCCN) is a national network of cancer centres that pursue collaborative cancer research in precision medicine (an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that considers individual variability in DNA, environment and lifestyle) to accelerate the discovery of innovations and improve the health outcomes for cancer patients


The purpose of this study is to use evolving technologies such as genomics and artificial intelligence to study cancer so that the right treatment can be given to the right patient, at the right time. Approximately 15,000 participants will take part in the greater MOHCCN study across Canada in the first 5 years, and ultimately the goal is to enroll up to 100,000 over next 10 years.
