Doctoral candidate Georgia Mitsa of Dr. Christoph Borchers’ proteomics lab received two awards from McGill University:

We welcome two new colleagues, Vanessa Gaspar working on an FRQS-funded project and Evgeniy Petrotchenko who is an expert in Structural Proteomics.
We are proud to be part of the Montreal Cancer Consortium (MCC) that has been recently funded by the Terry Fox Foundation and other co-funders. “Working together, the MCC researchers will also aim to better understand how various aspects of the immune system relate to acute leukemia and why therapy works for some patients but not others. They hope to identify new biomarkers and novel targets that will respond to immunotherapy treatments.” See press release
