A Tribute to a Pioneer in Cancer Care
In 1972, a young Dr. Peter McCulloch joined what is today the Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre as its first full-time medical oncologist. At that time, cancer treatment was mainly designed around radiation therapy.
As systemic therapy, also known as chemotherapy, gained widespread acceptance as a new and effective treatment, Dr. McCulloch was central to the development of the Systemic program at the Cancer Centre, growing it as both a clinical service and a major research focus.
Dr. McCulloch took a leadership role in establishing policies for the ethical conduct of research on people. His goal was to ensure that the system for reviewing research was in the very best interests of both patients and science.
For more than 30 years, Dr. McCulloch worked tirelessly on behalf of people living with cancer. Sadly, in 2003, at the age of 64, Dr. McCulloch succumbed to the very disease that he fought so gallantly on behalf of others.
The Peter B. McCulloch Leadership Giving Society was created as a lasting way to pay tribute to a man who contributed so much to the fight against cancer.
