Subscribe to the newsletter

IRIC will be holding an international scientific symposium on October 19 and 20, bringing together members of the Institute’s large community, past and present, to discuss cancer research. The theme of the Symposium is “Two decades of research at IRIC”, and it will also be an opportunity for everyone to officially mark IRIC’s 20th anniversary at the Université de Montréal.

The IRIC symposium will provide a unique opportunity to hear eminent scientists from here and abroad describe their latest discoveries, and discuss the potential for developing new cancer therapies. Praised for the quality of their discoveries, these conferences will offer participants an exceptional training opportunity as well as an excellent networking opportunity.

The IRIC community looks forward to your participation in what promises to be an exceptional educational and multidisciplinary experience!
