About the Thoracic Surgery Research Foundation of Montreal
The Thoracic Surgery Research Foundation of Montreal was the brainchild of Dr. Andre Duranceau and Dr. Pasquale Ferraro. The doctors, along with the Minicozzi family, came together to form a foundation that would focus on the needs of clinical care and research in the areas of lung transplantation , thoracic oncology and diseases of the oesophagus. Its mission is to sustain the development of the Division of Thoracic Surgery at Université de Montreal to help create the proper environment necessary for the recruitment of academic thoracic surgeons with an expertise in the field, which ultimately will help them support and maintain their role as leaders in the field of thoracic medicine.
