We are a group of researchers from many different Québec Universities all working in the field of cancer research. We are located in four hospital centres in Quebec, namely the University of Montreal Hospital Centre (CHUM), the University of Quebec Hospital Centre (CHUQ), the University of Sherbrooke Hospital Centre (CHUS) and the McGill University Hospital Centre (MUHC), as well as in the affiliated research and university centers (Sacré-Coeur, Maisonneuve-Rosemont and the Jewish General Hospital). The collaborative efforts created and maintained in this network have allowed for the transfer of knowledge and the sharing of cutting edge technologies.
The RRCancer is one of the thematic networks of the FRSQ. One of its objectives is to participate in the scientific community’s effort to improve the detection and the treatment of cancer. Resource optimization offers a stimulating environment for dynamic and organized research. The interaction between different oncological disciplines and researchers favours collaboration and large multicentric projects, as well as privileged partnerships with the OCC, Procure and the CTRNet.
RRCancer favours multidisciplinary cancer research in both fundamental and clinical sciences. The network is based on our researcher’s desire to work together to prevent cancer and improve therapeutic strategies, all the while continuing the crucial task of training new specialists and graduate students.
Xceed Molecular’s Ziplex® system has been tested to evaluate the reproducibility of the signature of gene expression. Dr. Patricia Tonin has applied this new technology to study the pattern of expression of messenger […]
Tumours can be dense pockets of tissue that at their core contain very little oxygen. The dense nature of tumours makes it difficult for drugs to be effectively delivered to the central cells. The head of the Experiment Therapeutics axis, Dr. G. Batist, collaborated […]
