The CURE Foundation has been powering the fight against breast cancer since 1997. National Denim Day is the CURE Foundation’s main fundraiser and is held annually on the Tuesday following Mother’s Day, this year on May 16th.
Organizations, institutions and businesses across Canada are encouraged to allow members, students and employees to wear denim on this day and to donate. We encourage all GCI students, staff and faculty to join us in wearing denim this May 16th for National Denim Day!
The GCI is proud to be supported by the CURE Foundation through their Fellowship in Breast Cancer Research, established in 2013 and granted to an outstanding graduate student working on a breast cancer focused research project.
Kailyn Wanhella, this year's recipient of the CURE Foundation Fellowship in Breast Cancer Research, is researching whether eIF4A inhibitors could be used in tandem with taxanes to influence the PDCD4/eIF4A axis and its controls of mitotic survival and progression, to treat cancer patients more effectively.
