The culmination of a family’s efforts is in the Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Research Centre, a facility made possible by a generous donation from the Goodman family. The centre, affiliated with McGill’s medical faculty, was inaugurated in the fall of 2008 as part of the university’s Life Sciences Complex. A cancer research centre has been in place at McGill for many years – the McGill Cancer Centre was founded in 1978 – but the new building brings together investigators who had worked in different places, under different roofs. The hope, says Rosalind Goodman, is for the centre to become one of the world’s greatest research spaces of its kind. “And it’s not an unreasonable hope,” she said. She wants for scientists and doctors who graduate from McGill to be enticed to stay here – and to work under optimal conditions. “We need to keep the best brains in Montreal,” she said.
