UWindsor celebrates success with Windsor Cancer Research Group

A group of more than 130 guests raised a glass during the recent  Windsor Cancer Research Group’s (WCRG) Cheers to Hope event held recently at the Walkerville Brewery. 

WCRG is a cooperative of local researchers, healthcare professionals and community partners on both sides of border, which aims to build teams to strengthen local cancer research programs.

"It was a wonderful night of celebration and an opportunity to informally meet so many interested in moving cancer research forward in Windsor-Essex,” said Lisa Porter, WCRG’s Translational Research Director, and UWindsor cancer researcher.

UWindsor was lauded at the event for providing significant support to WCRG over the past 18 months. UWindsor researchers comprise the majority of WCRG executive committee, and UWindsor students make up the WCRG volunteer committee.

Other organizations and individuals being honoured at event included Windsor Regional Hospital; UWindsor’s Cross-Border Institute; Caesars Windsor; Bear Construction & Engineering; and Ron Truant.
