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.
Open access results lead to advances in acute lymphoblastic leukemia
The BCLQ collects samples coming from many types of cancers, including acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Select ALL samples were analyzed via RNA sequencing by the Leucegene group who went on to published their findings and ensured that their data […]
Bridging fundamental and clinical science using biobanked samples
Translational science refers to research performed in a lab, or fundamental research, which is then applied to patients in a clinical setting. It is unquestionably important to moving forward in the fight against cancer. This type of research requires collaborations between researchers […]
