Jean-François Cailhier

I am a clinical researcher at the Institut du cancer de Montréal. I work as an independent researcher since 2007. The Institute supports my work. Events, such as the Casino contre le Cancer, are essential to enable the Institute to continue its mission of supporting research against cancer.

I have been implicated in the organization of the Casino against Cancer since the second edition! I participate in this great project to bring together young people (and those of heart) of the business and all of the health community together united in one cause, Research in immunotherapy to fight cancer!

Already, the sums collected by the Casino against Cancer have enabled us to obtain state-of-the-art equipment, such as a cell sorter, which makes it possible to more effectively isolate the white blood cells that are best adapted to eradicate cancer during immunotherapy treatments. We are the first in the world to use this technology for the isolation of anti-cancer immune cells. Come join us in this wonderful project!
