Research Facility

Atlantic Cancer Research Institute
New Brunswick (NB)

The Atlantic Cancer Research Institute (ACRI) is a non-profit organization founded in 1998 and situated within the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Center in Moncton. ACRI scientists are working with partners in Canada and around the world to impact patient care via the pursuit of research in the area of liquid biopsy and targeted treatment. We have a research team of over 50 people that have expertise in genomics, proteomics, molecular biology, cell biology, immunology, bioinformatics, pathology, next-generation sequencing, mass spectrometry as well as in vitro and in vivo testing. Through its work, ACRI is contributing to the global research effort aimed at combating cancer.
