/R E P E A T -- Media Advisory - Preventing cancer: What if research proved that the causes may be found in our environment/



    MONTREAL, May 29 /CNW Telbec/ - What if, in addition to treating cancer,
we would also attempt to prevent it by better understanding the impact of the
environment - living environment and lifestyle - on our risk of developing
cancer? This is precisely the research focus that the Université de Montréal
Faculty of Medicine, The Cancer Research Society and the Guzzo Family had in
mind when they created the Guzzo Environment-Cancer Research Chair of the
Université de Montréal, and when they decided to appoint Mr. Jack Siemiatycki,
a world-renowned epidemiologist, as holder of the Chair.
