We’re Passionate about Pathology

The mission of the OMPRN is to enhance molecular pathology research capacity across the province.

OMPRN logo

The Ontario Molecular Pathology Research Network (OMPRN) is a province-wide network of pathologists collaborating to carry out high-quality cancer research with a clear potential for clinical impact.

OMPRN was established by the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research (OICR) as part of its 2016-2021 Strategic Plan. OMPRN is also part of OICR’s Adaptive Oncology (AO) Initiative.

Molecular Pathology Education

OMPRN aims to address the need for knowledge transfer to pathologists across Ontario. Information on past and upcoming educational opportunities will be posted here when available.

Funding Pathology-led Research

OMPRN drives innovations in cancer research by supporting molecular pathology across the province through the Cancer Pathology Translational Research Grant (CPTRG) competition.
