June 26, 2015

The Institute for Research in Immunology and Cancer (IRIC) at the Université de Montréal has been awarded $0.5 M from the Fondation Marcel et Rolande Gosselin for its chemolibrary. The chemolibrary is a collection of molecules used during screenings that form the basis of new drugs to be designed by the researchers. “This donation demonstrates once again the faith that people have in IRIC and its ability to implement projects that will have a sure impact on those with cancer,” said Robert Tessier, Chair of IRIC’s board. “I thank the [Fondation] for a contribution that will make it possible to accelerate the discovery of successful ground-breaking therapies.” uMontréal News
