About the C3

The Canadian Cholangiocarcinoma Collaborative (C3) is a partnership among patients, caregivers, oncologists and researchers which was formed to grow hope in patients and families affected by cholangiocarcinoma.

Our mission is to translate that hope into better outcomes by enhancing patient access to personalized testing, expert opinions and treatments, including targeted agents and immunotherapy through clinical trials, and to create a high-quality immunotherapy pipeline for novel therapeutic discoveries.

We believe that Research is Care.
