A novel tool for observing molecular threesomes

 By Martin Primeau There are thousands of proteins hidden in every cell and that bind to each other to transmit information. This communication often involves 2 proteins at a time, but sometimes there are 3 or more! Some of these assemblies play key roles in signaling and the control of cell proliferation, and therefore it is […]

Pierre Thibault and Mike Tyers, winners of Genome Canada’s Genomics Technology Platforms 2016 Competition

The IRIC is proud to announce that it has been granted a funding of 3.41 M$ for its Centre for Advanced Proteomic and Chemogenomic Analyses (CAPCA), led by Pierre Thibault and Mike Tyers, both Principal Investigators at the IRIC, as part of Genome Canada’s “Genomics Technology Platforms 2016 Competition for Operations Support and Technology Development […]

The sweet tooth of melanoma explained

by Martin Primeau When they become cancerous, cells accelerate their metabolism to become real “sugar addicts”. This behavioral change provides them with a lot of energy, enough to accelerate their growth and multiplication. But how do they manage to change their eating habits? This is what Professor Philippe Roux’s team from the IRIC wanted to […]

The intimate bond between three proteins linked to cancer now unveiled

By Martin Primeau The team of Marc Therrien, Scientific Director and Principal Investigator at the IRIC, proposes a true paradigm shift in an article just published in the prestigious scientific journal Nature. Professor Therrien’s group was interested in the mechanism of activation of BRAF, a protein involved in many cancers because of its role as […]

In vivo science and artificial intelligence join forces to advance tools in cancer treatment and management

Montreal, February 8, 2018 — It will become easier to discover imaging biomarkers and identify digital surrogates for modern end-points in personalized therapies, thanks to a partnership between Sylvain Meloche – Principal Investigator within the signaling and cell growth research unit at the Institute for Research in Immunology and Cancer (IRIC) – along with his […]

Women & Science

On Sunday February 11th, the IRIC will be present at the Science Center for the Women & Science Forum. Three IRIC investigators will take part in the event by presenting their work to encourage young girls’ interest in science.
