Please help the Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Research Centre at McGill University continue to educate, recruit and support its world-class cancer scientists. Please see link below to the Donation Form for the different gift levels and the level of recognition.

Thanks to the legacy of Rosalind Goodman and the generosity of donors who helped establish the Rosalind Goodman Commemorative Scholarship, I am able to pursue my research.

Rosalind Goodman Commemorative Scholarship
Recognizes the exceptional work of a graduate student in the final years of their PhD studies at the GCRC.  In addition, the recipient has demonstrated and continues to demonstrate strong community involvement during his/her tenure. Read more about New Award Fosters Cancer Research.

Scholarship, Studentship, Fellowship, and Travel Awards
Dedicated graduate students and post-doctoral fellows are the driving force behind the work at the GCRC. Access to funds for scholarships and to forge strategic partnerships with other top cancer institutions around the world is critical to the success of these projects and are made more accessible through the creation of unique travel scholarships.   Learn more about award recipients and their award winning projects.

Knowledge is power, and that power gives all concerned an active role in the fight against cancer.
Eric Carsley

Public Forum
Oncology experts present an annual series of four Public Forums with free admission to the general public. The lectures empower the community-at-large with important information of up-to-date cancer research findings, offering answers to relevant questions in an informal setting.

Symposiums, Seminars, Workshops, and Exchange Programs
Several initiatives are in place to promote the exchange of ideas and report scientific findings within the Centre. These are crucial for creating a sense of excitement and cohesion. Workshops and exchange programs are helping future generations of talented students to continue their passion for research that will help patients and their families.
Find out about exciting scientific programs and seminars at the GCRC.

Support Research



Supporting research investigations, patient orientedhigh riskinnovative, and experimental at the GCRC represents the first line of offense in the fight against cancer.


Basic Research is a step that can't be missed.
Rosalind Goodman


Investigators focus on basic biomedical research and on translating these findings into new treatments and therapies that will cure or better manage cancer.

Grants are used to fund major research projects and to develop a comprehensive range of core hubs of innovation that provide the Centre with access to advanced technical expertise and state-of-the-art equipment.

Medical researchers at the Centre are making groundbreaking discoveries, but their work is costly.  Remarkable discoveries are not limited by a lack of knowledge, but rather by a lack of resources. Critical "high-risk, high-reward" projects are difficult to fund through traditional funding mechanisms. Private funding, most notably the biennial Gala, offers vital support for innovative research initiatives that are typically not funded by large granting agencies.

Area of Greatest Need

Bruce and Joelle Kent - June 2014

Your donation will go a long way to impact funding for innovative cancer research.

The Power of Giving

Philanthropy is understanding the significance of being part of something larger than one's self and the significance of contributing to a community.
Rosalind and Morris Goodman

Your support can sustain the recruitment of world-class scientists, expert technicians, new technologies and equipment, and will help extend our reach with the Montreal research community-at-large. Your generous gift will greatly benefit the scientific research that impacts patient diagnosis, improved treatments, and patient outcomes.
