Drs. Phil Gold and Samuel Freedman 50th Anniversary of CEA

The year, 2015, marked the 50th Anniversary of Dr. Phil Gold and Dr. Samuel Freedman’s ground-breaking discovery of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), the first clinically-useful human tumour marker and one that is found in 70% of cancer patients. It was a concept-shifting discovery and helped shape the modern era of cancer immunology and tumour markers. This marker remains the most frequently used blood test in oncology around the world today, in addition to being the standard against which other human tumour markers are measured. Innumerable lives have been saved as a result of this test.

To highlight the 50th Anniversary, a celebratory gathering was held on November 24, 2015 which included a Free Scientific Colloquium and a Gala Celebration Dinner.

This celebration is also a stepping stone for future research as the goal is to fundraise and launch a new Research Award that would be announced annually at the Research Institute MUHC Research Awards Dinner. The recipients would be deserving, up-and-coming clinicians, clinician scientists or scientists who play a critical role in the development of medicine and cancer research. This Award would be named the Dr. Gold Fellowship Award in Cancer Research and its main mission is to create opportunities for the next generation; allowing the recipients to pave their own way to new research discoveries.

Donations or pledges to the Dr. Gold Fellowship can be made on our website, click here to donate to this award. All net proceeds from the Gala Celebration Dinner have been designated to the Dr. Gold Fellowship award.

 

 


Care At The Highest Level

We are embarking on a $20 million fundraising initiative that will ensure that the hospital’s core services of trauma care, thoracic surgery, mental health, geriatrics, gastroenterology, orthopaedics, minimally invasive surgery, nursing research, and other medical disciplines continue to provide care at the highest level. Download the brochure to learn more about this important initiative.


The only downtown Level 1 Trauma Centre

The MGH, the only centre for ultra specialized adult trauma care located in downtown Montreal, brings together some 40 medical and paramedical disciplines. Each year, the MGH receives some 10,000 trauma patients, including more than 1,500 who present with injuries sufficiently serious to involve intensive care, surgery, and rehabilitation.

Thanks to the support of the MGH Foundation, Montreal-area students benefit from injury prevention programs.
