ABOUT THE EVENT /
Founded in 2016, Jeunes philanthropes de l'IRIC is a group of young professionals who were brought together by their desire to make a difference in the fight against cancer.
They rallied around supporting the Institute for Research in Immunology and Cancer (IRIC), a Montreal-based research center with the potential to impact treatment around the world.
Cancer is the enemy and we plan on doing our very best to knock it out! 100% of the proceeds raised during the event will go directly to support research efforts.
Knock Out Cancer aims to achieve three objectives with the community of Young Professionals in Montreal:
ACCELERATING THE ADVANCEMENT OF KNOWLEDGE AND THE DISCOVERY OF NEW, MORE EFFECTIVE CANCER THERAPIES
One in two Canadians is expected to develop cancer in their lifetime. One in four Canadians is expected to die from this disease. It is the leading cause of death in the country. Each year, cancer is responsible for 30% of all deaths in Canada.
IRIC was created in 2003 to fight the disease. The Institute stands out for its research model unique in the country, combining the complementary expertise of 28 Investigators with that of a research maturation team. IRIC can also rely on its 11 core facilities, including the country’s largest medicinal chemistry core facility in an academic setting.
