Scientific activites

The Oncopole’s mission is to act as a catalyst and maximize the full potential of Quebec’s cancer research and innovation ecosystem, while at the same time positioning the province as a key player in the field. Its action priorities, namely research, entrepreneurship, commercializing and integrating innovation as well as clinical relevance, are orchestrated for the purpose of fostering the mobilization of the ecosystem, the discovery of innovative approaches to fight cancer and, ultimately, positive benefits for patients.

The Oncopole hopes to support and encourage the scope and the mobilization of that ecosystem by contributing financially to organizing events related to its mission.

These events must foster exchanges between investigators, clinicians, health professionals or the general public involving oncology-themed activities.

Goals

  1. More exchange of information, networking, development and sharing of best practices
  2. Gather expertise on promising scientific themes in an interdisciplinarity context
  3. Foster synergy between the various institutions and partners involved in oncology research
  4. Allow federative projects and new collaborations to emerge
  5. Increase Quebec’s influence and positioning at both the national and international levels
  6. Encourage interaction between investigators, clinicians and patient associations, patients and the general public
