The importance of your donations
Located in the heart of the Université de Montréal, IRIC is a unique research centre in Canada. The Institute groups together, under one roof, a team of Investigators from around the world, a unique university program to train the next generation of scientists and a commercialization hub that accelerates the discovery of novel therapies.
For the past 20 years, your donations have enabled us to reinvent research and to make spectacular advances to shed light on the mechanisms of cancer. Your generosity has resulted in the recruitment of 35 distinguished Investigators, the awarding of over 250 scholarships to the top graduate students, the funding of 21 major innovative projects and the acquisition of cutting-edge equipment, including one device for proteomics and one device for high-throughput screening.
Contribute to the collective effort
The number of new cancer cases increases each year, mainly because of the aging population. Along with the disastrous consequences for patients and their families, cancer is an enormous burden on society, for its detrimental impact on both the healthcare system and the national economy. In order to reverse that trend, more and more money must be invested to support research. The financing obtained by the major funding organizations is not enough to support research. As a result, developing more effective and better adapted cancer therapies requires a collective effort.
