Goodman Cancer Research Centre
The Goodman Cancer Research Gala is a biennial fundraising event that supports innovative cancer research being carried out at the Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Research Centre. 
Since the inaugural gala in 2010, followed by galas 2012, 2014, and 2016 this signature event has raised significant funding to help sustain the progress of cancer research at the GCRC.  These funds contribute to the world-class environment that houses the Centre’s innovative programs and brilliant researchers. 
Donations and philanthropy also enable the Centre to purchase sophisticated laboratory equipment, recruit brilliant scientists, train tomorrow’s leaders, and continue to make exciting advances in basic cancer discovery.

Goodman Cancer Research Galas

World-class collaboration. Join us on June 6, 2018 to support and celebrate our internationally renowned researchers in their quest to improve the lives of cancer patients through translational research and clinical partnerships across Quebec.

Theme: The Lung Cancer Network: Collaborate to Cure

The 2018 Gala celebrates the establishment of a large, innovative Lung Cancer Network that will bring together the greatest minds, big data, the best technology and the highest quality research to tackle the challenges of lung cancer and metastatic disease.
At the GCRC, we know that the key to making strides in treating cancer is close collaboration among scientists, clinicians and their patients. Our goal is for hospitals across Montreal to partner with the GCRC in a united mission to double the number of lung cancer survivors in Quebec over the next 10 years.
