What happens after the ALS ice bucket challenge?

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a devastating fatal disease of the nervous system that kills two to five Canadians every day. On September 19th and 20th, the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital (The Neuro), at McGill University and the McGill University Health Centre will host the 10th Annual ALS Symposium of the Fondation André-Delambre. Nearly one hundred researchers and clinicians from several countries will come together to discuss recent progress in ALS research.

Rosalind Goodman loses battle with cancer

Mrs. Rosalind Goodman

McGill University is mourning the passing of Rosalind Goodman, a devoted alumna, generous philanthropist, and tireless volunteer, who committed herself to energizing cancer research activities at McGill and to educating others about the disease. It is an illness she fought and survived in 2007, but one that ultimately took her life on Monday, Aug. 11.

Scientists find important piece in the brain tumour puzzle

Scientists at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital, McGill University and McGill University Health Centre have shown that a member of the protein family known as SUMO (small ubiquitin-like modifier) is a key to why tumour cells multiply uncontrollably, especially in the case of glioblastoma. The SUMO family proteins modify other proteins and the SUMOylation of proteins are critical for many cellular processes. Identifying SUMO’s role in the cancer cell growth will lead to a new strategy for glioblastoma treatment.
