Supporting research in:
Breast Cancer

Each year, thousands of women, both young and old, are plagued by the devastating diagnosis of breast cancer. This disease not only affects these women individually, but their families as well.

The IMRIC collaboration between McGill University and the Hebrew University will help us to understand how cancer cell programming works, which can help scientists stop the spread of the cancer. This research can give doctors more effective forms of treatment and save the lives of thousands of women in the future.
