In 2020, IRICoR concluded a major partnership with Ovarian Cancer Canada. By launching the pan-Canadian LeadAction Ovarian Cancer Competition, the 5th call for projects at IRICoR, these organizations aimed to fund innovative ovarian cancer research projects to accelerate the discovery of new treatments.
A few months ago, the winners of the Competition were announced. A total amount of $2.3M over two (2) years will be invested, namely $1.15M from IRICoR and $1.15M from Ovarian Cancer Canada’s OvCAN initiative, funded in large part by Health Canada.
