12th Symposium RRCancer and MOH-Q

Welcome to the 2024 RRCancer symposium!

The Réseau de la recherche sur le cancer (RRCancer, Oncopole), in partnership with the Marathon of Hope Québec (MOH-Q), welcomes you to its 12th biennial symposium. Once again, the organizing committee is offering a hybrid format to ensure that all RRCancer members (and future members!) can attend the meeting. We will host the in-person meeting in the Pierre-Péladeau amphitheatre at the CHUM on September 26th-27th, 2024.

We express our heartfelt gratitude to RRCancer patient partners who will participate in the conference. Patient partners provide unique perspectives that go beyond fundamental and clinical science.

The conferences will be divided into different sessions on the following themes

  • Preclinical Models, Translational, and Clinical Research (including but not limited to)
    • Model systems, Preclinical research, Bioengineering, Drug repositioning, Biomarkers, and Liquid biopsies
  • Molecular Mechanisms (including but not limited to)
    • Signaling, Epigenetics, Metabolism, and DNA repair
  • Targeted Therapies and Immunotherapies (including but not limited to)
    • Precision medicine, New drug development, and Cell therapy
  • MOH-Q and Multiomics (including but not limited to)
    • High-throughput technologies
  • Learning Equitable System (including but not limited to)
    • Implantation science, Sustainable health, Real-Real-world data and evidence-based research
  • Microenvironment and Environmental Factors (including but not limited to)
    • Microbiota, Exercise, Nutrition, and Viruses
