The Rosalind & Morris Goodman Cancer Research Centre at McGill University, located within McGill’s Life Sciences Complex, is a state-of-the-art hub for ground-breaking cancer research that has attracted and retained brilliant scientists from around the world.

Our goal is to improve our understanding of lung cancer, which in turn will lead to new therapeutic strategies and improved patient outcomes.
