About TIP

The Tumor Immunotherapy Program (TIP) at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre is the first program of its kind in Canada and one of a handful around the world. Our team is made up of experts in the fields of immunology, oncology, genomics, bioinformatics, pathology and surgery.

TIP is directed by Dr. Pamela Ohashi, a world-renowned basic and translational immunologist and Dr. Lillian Siu who integrates TIP with two other key programs at the Princess Margaret: the Drug Development Program (DDP) and Cancer Genomics Program (CGP). These three programs form a synergistic triad that supports the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre’s core vision to deliver precision cancer medicine.

The four key research domains of TIP include:

  1. Discovery research.
  2. Investigator-initiated clinical studies.
  3. Sponsored clinical studies.
  4. Health services and outcomes research.
