2016 Report to Our Donors

The largest recruitment

A gift of $50 million pledged in early 2013

by Emmanuelle Gattuso, Allan Slaight and

the Slaight family was a huge boost to our


Princess Margaret Cancer Centre to continue

building the scientific team needed to lead

the way in defining and implementing

Personalized Cancer Medicine.

“Recruiting scientists in new fields

like bioinformatics, epigenetics and

immunotherapy has enabled us to expand

the breadth of our research program,”

explains Dr. Bradly Wouters, Research

Director at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.

“Even more importantly, with these highly-

specialized scientists collaborating with

the world-renowned cancer researchers

already here, we are uniquely equipped to

tackle challenging research problems that

haven’t been attempted anywhere before.

There is an incredible level of synergy and

excitement that has been created through

these new recruits.”

This past year, the Gattuso Slaight gift has

enabled the leaders of our research team

to recruit two new superstars—Dr. David

Brooks and Dr. Steven Chan—who are very

excited to continue their important work at

The Princess Margaret. This brings the total

for this recruitment drive to nine superstars!
