“We are very grateful for the Bronfman family,” said Dr. Franco. As a result of the Bronfman’s generosity, the Bronfman Centre became a reality 22 years ago, providing access to cutting-edge cancer treatment through clinical trials. The clinical research program in oncology supports patients while working in a multidisciplinary environment.

The Marjorie and Gerald Bronfman Endowment continues to provide the means to initiate innovative programs in cancer research that have a profound impact on the quality of patient care.
