The CHUS Foundation’s Jean-Luc Mongrain Fund announced $200,000 in support for four different local medical research projects on Wednesday morning. Each of the initiatives, covering topics such as the treatment of anxiety, regeneration of damaged tissues, better diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer, and use of medical imagery in the prediction of type-two diabetes, will split the funds evenly and thus receive $50,000 each. Doctor William Fraser, Scientific Director of the research centre of the CIUSSS de L’Estrie – CHUS, highlighted the significance of the donations by pointing out that good research is the basis of discovery and development in the healthcare system.
