The Thoracic Surgery Research Foundation was created in 2004 by Dr André Duranceau and Dr Pasquale Ferraro, with the precious support of the Minicozzi Family.
The Foundation's mission is to ensure the growth and the development of Thoracic Surgery in Quebec. The Foundation raises funds and manages University Endowed Research Chairs in support of research in thoracic oncology, esophageal diseases and lung transplantation.
Our objective: provide better access to personalized and highly-specialized health care and provide our patients with hope to overcome their diseases.
Our mission is to sustain the development of the Division of Thoracic Surgery at l’Université de Montreal to help create the proper environment necessary in the recruitment of academic thoracic surgeons with an expertise in the field, which ultimately will help them support and maintain their role as leaders in the field of thoracic medicine.
This new program aims to recognize those who contribute to the growth and the development of thoracic surgery in Quebec and to the success of our projects.
It describes the different levels of recognition and visibility available, based on the donor’s profile.
For each of our events, we offer various sponsorship opportunities. We invite you to look at the sponsorship program for our 13th Annual Black & White 2018, to be held on April 14, 2018.
Thanks to your generosity and support, our Foundation has successfully achieved its objectives and continues today to provide better care, offer high-quality teaching and perform highly-technological research, allowing us to retain the best doctors and practitioners in their fields of expertise.
The Foundation is very proud to announce that as of January 2018, it will be operating out of its new offices located at 835 René-Lévesque East in Montreal, just a few steps away from the new CHUM.
Our research Chairs not only promote excellence in clinical care, education and research in thoracic oncology, esophageal diseases and lung transplantation, but also ensure the recruitment, the retention of surgeons with a high level of academic expertise.
