Welcome to Laval University Cancer Research Center (CRC)


Located in the heart of old Québec city, we are a cutting-edge multidisciplinary research and training center in oncology affiliated to L’Hôtel-Dieu de Québec hospital and Université Laval.

Fundamental research at L’Hôtel-Dieu de Québec is focused on two important areas for the hospital, cancer research and nephrology. Clinical and evaluative research is organized around the entirety of the hospital’s medical services.

Our research center brings together over 35 research teams under the direction of professor/scientists from Université Laval working in molecular and cellular biology, applied oncology, clinical epidemiology and psycho-oncology and palliative care.
