Congratulations to the researchers and a huge thank you to our partners and donors. Our warmest thanks to our collaborators, the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC) and the Cedars Cancer Foundation. We are privileged to be surrounded by visionary medical leaders and generous philanthropists, reflecting our shared vision for the future of healthcare.   

One of the top research projects being rewarded this year is led by rising local doctor Anthony Bozzo. With his impressive background in orthopedic oncology, treating sarcomas, combined with his expertise in AI, Dr. Bozzo aims to revolutionize the way patient data is analyzed to deliver better treatments, more tailored to each individual. Ultimately, his goal is to predict the risk of metastasis and the chances of survival for people affected by cancer. Learn more about his project.
