Did you know?

Cancer is the leading cause of death in Quebec1 and the second leading cause worldwide2.

As such, nearly 2 in 5 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime3. This means that millions of children, adults and seniors, regardless of their social status, will have their lives disrupted by the disease.



Research at the Institute

Founded 75 years ago, the Montreal Cancer Institute, affiliated to CRCHUM, supports excellence in research in order to find new treatments against cancer and, ultimately, beat the disease.

The researchers who are members of the Institute focus on cancers of epithelial origin, which include most solid tumors, such as ovarian cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer and lung cancer.
