Recent establishments and development of several institutes dedicated to cancer research in Quebec has dramatically improved the scientific infrastructures and the quality of basic and clinical programs in this province. A recent study performed by the Fonds de recherche en santé du Québec (FRSQ), estimates that oncology research output by impact factors and number of publications from Quebec universities and hospital based institutes is the most performing field of biomedical research in the province. Direct and growing collaborations between these centres and their usage of state of the art technological platforms place them in an excellent position to participate into first-rate oncology studies on the international scene.
