The Institut du cancer de Montréal created the Andrée LeMyre scholarship in memory of Mrs Andrée LeMyre, who died of cancer in August 1998 after having spent over 40 years of her professional life in the fight against cancer, mainly as a chief technician.

This scholarship is awarded to technical staff that assist CHUM researchers who are members of the Institut. Awarded annually, they allow the recipient to further their training by taking a laboratory-based class or internship.
