Alive thanks to innovative research

Serges Bériault’s life changed in 2012, when he was diagnosed with a bile duct cancer of the liver. The father of two children and active professional finishing an MBA never thought an army of specialists at the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) would get him through a complex and innovative research protocol that saved his life.

Read the inspirational account of Dr. Zogopoulous' remarkable treatment of his patient, Serges Bériault, and the impact of innovative research.
