The CANSEARCH Foundation presents its research projects throughout the year to members of its Scientific Committee who bring their own expertise and comments in an objective manner.  Once a year, a meeting with researchers from the laboratory of the Foundation is organized in order to validate the research.

The Scientific Committee is composed of renowned international specialized practicing professors and doctors in order to have expertise on ongoing and current research. It is bound to evolve depending on the projects. It is also allowed to call on international experts when deemed necessary.
