Vanquishing cancer differently

The Institute for Research in Immunology and Cancer (IRIC) of Université de Montréal invites you to its benefit event to be held on Wednesday, May 31, on The Parquet of the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec.

Throughout the course of their lives, 40% of Canadian women and 45% of Canadian men will be diagnosed with cancer. Thanks to a bold business and research model and the support of CGI and Mr. Godin, and many other generous donors and partners, over ten short years, IRIC has managed to make its mark internationally through scientific advances and discoveries, which will have a significant impact on the treatment of cancer, the leading cause of death in Canada.

In this context, it is important that the Quebec business community and the leaders of today and tomorrow join together with the innovating team of IRIC’s investigators to ensure the continuity of projects with such a great social mission. On May 31, come celebrate entrepreneurship, succession and research! Come and be Audacious!
