John Valliant Funded by Canadian Cancer Society Print E-mail

Three cancer studies led by McMaster University researchers are among 52 new research projects announced today by the Canadian Cancer Society.

John Valliant $412,400

John Valliant is studying a way to develop a more precise, non-invasive method to detect breast cancer. With this funding, he will create an imaging probe to help identify insulin receptors that are abundant on the surface of breast cancer cells, with the goal of using this early change in cancer cells for screening and to predict the best treatment options.

Valliant is an associate professor of chemistry and CEO and scientific director of the Centre for Probe Development and Commercialization.

Grants are selected after a rigorous national application and review process. A complete list of newly funded research grants across the country can be found at the Canadian Cancer Society.
