Who We Are

The Goodman Cancer Research Centre is a recognized world-class research centre, contributing to innovative developments in the treatment and ultimately the cure for cancer.

This state of the art Centre has energized cancer research at McGill, attracting internationally–renown investigators. These are exciting times, with an unprecedented collaboration between clinicians and basic scientists with the shared goal of investigating the nature of cancer and metastatic disease; working together to innovate, discover and develop new treatments for cancer patients.

What We Do

Despite the initial benefits of treating HER2-amplified breast cancer patients with the tyrosine kinase inhibitor lapatinib, resistance inevitably develops. Geneviève Deblois, a trainee in Dr. Vincent Giguère’s group, assembled a team of researchers from six different laboratories affiliated with the GCRC to find out the mechanisms leading to resistance to this drug in HER-2 positive breast cancer.
