The past year has been filled with outstanding scientific achievements and major milestones in the growth and development of the Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Research Centre. As reflected in our Annual Report, we continue to make
discoveries and change lives. 

Our collaborative approach is central to who we are 

Our investigators are tackling the most important problems in cancer research through innovative thinking and collaboration.

State-of-the-art technology for cancer research

Located at the heart of McGill University’s Life Sciences Complex, we are a research and training facility that has attracted leading scientists from across the world.

Laying the groundwork for new therapies

By deepening our understanding of the mechanisms behind cancer, we are providing the core knowledge with clinicians to develop new cancer treatments.

Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Research Centre

The Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Institute is a recognized world-class research centre, contributing to innovative developments in the treatment and ultimately the cure for cancer. This state of the art institute has energized cancer research at McGill, attracting internationally–renowned investigators.

On May 6 and 7, 2021, more than 100 students, staff, faculty members and external guests attended the Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Research Centre’s (GCRC) Research Day Symposium. Launched more than a decade ago, the event provides an annual opportunity for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows working in cancer research to present their work to their peers and the wider scientific community. Cancer researchers from external institutions are invited to speak and the event also serves as an important networking opportunity. This year’s co-organizers were Sheri McDowell, a PhD student from the Quail lab and a leader of the Equity, Diversity and Inclusion committee within the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and Simon Milette, a PhD student co-supervised by Dr. Daniela Quail and Dr. Jonathan Spicer.
