In 2004, more than 10 years ago, a small but ambitious Foundation was born. Our mission was clear – to promote the research and development of thoracic surgery in Quebec. The objective was to create three endowed University Chairs, one in each of our three specialties: thoracic oncology, lung transplantation and oesophageal diseases.

Over the past several years, the Foundation has been able to rely not only on the support and the unwavering commitment of its donors and sponsors, but also on the involvement of an extraordinary team, who acts as an ambassador of excellence towards the development of technological in-roads in thoracic surgery.

It is thanks to the unconditional support of each and every one of you, year after year, that our Foundation has successfully achieved its objectives and continues today to provide better care, to offer high-quality teaching and to perform highly-technological research.

Thank you to all who contribute, day after day, to the success of our Foundation and the realization of our mission.
