As Chair of the Department of Pathology at McGill University and as Chief of Pathology at the Montreal General Hospital and at the Glen site, I would like to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude to the Foundation and to all the donors for their generous gifts. With your financial support, we have been able to recruit and retain top researchers and academic pathologists from across the world, many of whom have become the backbone of our department and are rising stars in their field of specialization!

Thanks to your donations, our research capacity has significantly increased from 88 publications in 2012 to 199 publications in 2019, our research grants have grown from $ 3.3M per year to over $ 20M per year, and our number of graduate students has quadrupled from 8 to 32 individuals. Our trainees and young pathologists are winning prestigious awards at national and international conferences and we can continue to provide our patients with the highest standard of diagnostic services – all thanks to the generosity of donors.
