The goal of C17 Research Network is to improve the treatment, care, quality of life and the outcomes of children with cancer, blood disorders, and stem cell transplants. The C17 Research Network supports research that is hypothesis driven, addresses a gap in knowledge, furthers our current understanding or explores new ideas and areas. The mandate of the C17 Research Network is to fund Canadian-led, preferentially collaborative research involving multiple pediatric oncology/hematology centres, across Canada; multi-disciplinary research; and to encourage new research collaborations.

Applications are welcome for projects with a justification to function as a single centre, although collaboration is strongly encouraged. New collaborations, mentorship and applications from Young Investigators also are encouraged.
