Toronto Angiogenesis Research Centre

Toronto Angiogenesis Research Centre (TARC) The Toronto Angiogenesis Research Centre (TARC), located at the Sunnybrook Research Institute (SRI), is comprised of several core facilities for Canadian scientists interested in studying the angiogenic response and applying the findings to the clinic for antiangiogenic therapies and therapeutic angiogenesis.

The research cores supported by TARC include the following laboratories:

Collectively, these labs provide SRI and Canadian scientists rapid access to key technologies to study angiogenesis.

TARC is positioning itself to become the pre-eminent program in Canada studying the molecular basis of the angiogenic response. We bring together scientists interested in studying angiogenesis at the level of protein function, preclinical animal models, vascular imaging, specimen collection and clinical trials.

The centre houses state-of-the-art equipment and expertise to ensure that the work undertaken within it is done in a timely fashion and will have a major impact in the field of angiogenesis research.
