WELCOME TO THE FOUNDATION



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



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.
