This project is the second phase of an initiative launched by the Cole Foundation to unite the efforts of researchers from different Quebec universities through the creation of a collaborative research fund on leukemia and lymphoma in children and young adults. The goal is to raise $5 million for Quebec researchers. The partners involved in the adventure are the Canadian Cancer Society, Leucan, the Ste-Justine Foundation, the Children’s Foundation and the Biopharmaceutical Research Consortium (CQDM). The Canadian Cancer Society acts as trustee of the fund and its scientific committees are responsible for the analysis of the applications, which must propose a collaboration between two or more partners. We are proud to join this initiative.
