Kiwanis Club Medical Foundation Recognized for Investment in Cancer Research (Article)

August 19 / 2014

Ottawa is home to some of the most talented cancer researchers in the country – working on leading-edge projects that are helping to shape the future of cancer care.

The Kiwanis Club of Ottawa Medical Foundation is incredibly proud to support these local scientists, and has pledged $100,000 to the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation in support of local cancer research. Those funds are being directed to the ground-breaking cancer research taking place in Dr. Korneluk’s lab at CHEO. The research combines two experimental cancer treatments — viral therapy, which was pioneered at the

Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, as well as IAP (inhibitor of apoptosis protein)-based therapies that target cancer genes, which were discovered at CHEO 19 years ago.

On Wednesday, August 20th the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation is recognizing the Kiwanis Club’s commitment to cancer research by hosting a dedication ceremony in the Richard & Annette Bloch Cancer Survivors Park.

Date: Wednesday, August 20th, 2014
Time: Dedication will take place at 5:30pm – 5:45pm
Location: Richard & Annette Bloch Cancer Survivors Park, Located at the corner of Riverside Drive and Industrial Ave.
