Institute for Research in Immunology and Cancer (IRIC)
A state-of-the-art research and training center located in the heart of the Université de Montréal.
One in two Canadians will develop cancer in their lifetime. One in four Canadians will die from it. This disease is the leading cause of death in the country. Each year, cancer accounts for 30% of deaths in Canada.
The IRIC was created in 2003 to tackle this disease. The Institute stands out for its unique research model, which combines the complementary expertise of 29 researchers with that of a research translation team. IRIC also relies on 10 technological platforms and a Drug Discovery Unit, composed of the largest team of medicinal chemists and academic biologists in the country.
