Stepping up the pace of discovery

Understanding, investigating, pushing the boundaries every day: the status quo is not an option at Sainte-Justine. Holding the promise of a healthier future, research is the vehicle of hope for all families in Quebec.

Your donations help for example to:

  • Discover new treatments so more children can be cured from cancer

  • Increase the number of premature babies who survive without long-term side-effects

  • Through genetics, better understand and provide faster diagnostics for children afflicted with a rare disease.

Stepping up the pace of discovery

Understanding, investigating, pushing the boundaries every day: the status quo is not an option. At the CHU Sainte-Justine’s research centre, the second largest pediatric research centre in Canada, an elite team of researchers are revolutionizing the medicine of the future. Holding the promise of a healthier future, research is a vehicle of hope for all families in Quebec.

Your donations help for example to:

  • Discover new treatments to increase the survival rate for children with cancer as well as reduce the risk of short and long-term side-effects. In the near future, the objective is to offer personalized therapies, in order to minimize the consequences of treatment and aim for a 100% survival rate for leukaemia.

  • Increase the number of premature babies who survive without long-term side effects and reduce the risk of complications arising while in the neonatal unit that could lead longer-term to pulmonary, cardiovascular and other development problems.

  • Identify new genes associated with rare diseases, by developing genetic tests and a better understanding of these diseases. Faster and more precise diagnostics, personalized treatments, better support, these are just some examples of the impact of research.
