Ontario Molecular Pathology Research Network

A province-wide network of pathologists collaborating to carry out high-quality cancer research with a clear potential for clinical impact.

About Our resource

A critical mass of research-oriented pathologists is necessary to expedite the transition of findings to precision oncology and make its benefits available to cancer patients. The Ontario Molecular Pathology Research Network (OMPRN) is a group of Ontario pathologists collaborating within the province’s academic research community in order to help expedite cancer research with a promise for clinical impact. 

The OMPRN supports pathology-led research through the Cancer Pathology Translational Research Grants, training available through hands-on workshops and the Network’s annual meeting, and by promoting and mapping the capabilities of pathology departments across Ontario. Through increased research participation, collaboration and mentorship, the ultimate goal of OMPRN is to translate these strategies into improved diagnosis and treatment for cancer patients.



To enhance molecular pathology research capacity across Ontario


  • Foster collaboration and cooperation between Ontario academic pathologists;

  • Increase the participation of pathologists in high-quality translational cancer research;

  • Provide opportunities for residents, fellows and early career pathologists to obtain training and mentorship in cancer research.
