Livia Garzia, PhD

Dr. Catherine Goudie is a pediatric hematologist-oncologist at the Montreal Children's Hospital. She also leads a pediatric cancer surveillance clinic at the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC). Her research is focused on genetic predisposition in pediatric cancers. The main goals are developing tools to early detect and diagnose patients with such predisposition in addition to understanding the underlying genetic causes behind the syndromes (PMID: 34617981, 29986924, and 29175835). 

Dr. Livia Garzia is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery and a principal investigator in the Cancer Research Program of the Research Institute of the MUHC. She also holds the Nicole et Francois Angers Sarcoma Research Chair. Her research focuses on pediatric bone tumors such as Ewing Sarcoma and Osteosarcoma. The Garzia lab uses genetic and molecular techniques to understand the molecular basis of therapy resistance and metastasis (PMID: 29474906, 32445698, 32967858).  

The Basic and Clinical Oncology Seminar Series (BCO) is a joint initiative by the IRCM and LDI institutes in Montreal. These monthly seminars will feature a clinical (MD or MD/PhD) and a basic scientist (PhD) speaker, both working on the same cancer or theme. The goal is to create a dialogue between those at the bench and their peers at the bedside. The long-term goal is to initiate and expedite collaborations like sharing samples and exchanging expertise. Each seminar is made of two talks, each for 15 minutes and 5 minutes of questions. The remaining 10 minutes is for open discussion.
