Queen’s receives $25M to advance cancer research


Queen’s University has received a $25M gift from Cara and Murray Sinclair toward the university’s cancer research institute, which will be renamed the Cara & Murray Sinclair Cancer Research Institute (SCRI). This funding will build research capacity, establish new imaging facilities and a new specialized biomanufacturing facility, support the creation of an SCRI innovation fund, and launch new training opportunities for students and early-career researchers. “Their gift will enhance the Cara & Murray Sinclair Cancer Research Institute’s ability to discover new potential treatments, test new drugs, and evaluate the impact that these treatments have on patients,” said Queen’s Principal Patrick Deane.
