It's not just a dream anymore: now more than ever, solutions are within our reach! Thanks to research, the life expectancy of those affected continues to increase. Our researchers need time to develop and identify lasting solutions that will contribute to preventing, treating and curing the disease. Meet some of the researchers who, thanks to your donations, are racing against time to beat this disease once and for all.
Cancer is a very complex disease that affects everyone in some way. Basic research is essential to defeat this terrible illness. Unlike other diseases, cancer is caused by combinations of multiple genetic mutations, hence why the challenge is huge.
The first grant I received came from the Cancer Research Society. Since 2003, the Society awarded me five operating grants. It is because of the Society’s donors that I was able to build my team of researchers.
Different forms of cancer are driven by different changes to your cells. Finding unique properties in a cancer cell that sets it apart from a normal healthy cell is critical to develop effective therapies with low side effects.
All funds raised have been essential to initiate this critical research aimed at developing novel therapeutic strategies and targets to better treat the disease.
High fat diets are known to accelerate the growth of several cancer types including breast and colon. Our lab aims to study the links between fat metabolism and the progression of cancer.
Laurie Ailles and her team are using primary patient-derived cultures and tissues to gain a deep understanding of the epigenetic deregulation occurring in clear cell renal cell carcinoma
Colorectal cancer is often found in members of a same family, suggesting a strong hereditary component.
Cancer affects us all. The disease is complex, and its treatments, varied. Our researchers are working on several fronts to defeat this terrible disease.
Your support plays a key role in funding research. Your donations are an investment in you, your family and generations to come.
