FINANCE RESEARCH AND INNOVATION THANKS TO CHEFS ACADEMY
The Foundation's goal is to raise $ 100,000 with Chefs Academy. These funds will support research and innovation right here in Quebec, by funding one of the research programs of Dr. Mark Basik, a surgeon-oncologist at the Jewish General Hospital.
Live Tumor Program: This approach aims to grow the cancer cells that come directly from the patient, in the laboratory, and then treat them with different drugs to observe their response to treatments. The ultimate goal is to be able to find an effective treatment right away without having to impose on patients unsuccessful treatments with significant side effects.
This program fits directly into the era of precision medicine, that is to say, to establish screening strategies, prevention and treatments that are best adapted to each patient according to their individual characteristics, including their lifestyles and their social environment.
