Moncton, New Brunswick (November 1, 2022) - The Atlantic Cancer Research Institute (ACRI) thanks the invaluable support of the volunteer members of its Board of Directors. Ongoing support that enables ACRI researchers to make globally recognized research contributions and to strengthen relationships with partners, collaborators, and the community.

ACRI is therefore proud to announce that Mr. Gaëtan Thomas was elected Chairman of its Board of Directors on October 28, 2022.

Mr. Thomas has served on ACRI's Board of Directors since 2015 and has acted as Vice-Chair for the past few years. Mr. Thomas, a seasoned and well-known provincial leader, currently serves as CEO of the Conseil économique du Nouveau-Brunswick and previously had a long career with NB Power. His contributions have been innumerable over the past few years and ACRI is fortunate to benefit from his continued support in its evolutionary journey. Mr. Thomas' chairmanship comes at a turning point for ACRI and will aim to mobilize and bring together key partners in the co-creation of a new health research institute in which ACRI will occupy an important place.

To Madame Gionet, our outgoing Chair and the first woman to serve in this capacity for the organization, ACRI would like to take the opportunity to thank you for the time and resources you have devoted to helping steer ACRI towards a prosperous future. During her mandate, Ms. Gionet devoted great energy to the sale of the Conceptia fertility clinic to a Canadian consortium. A transaction that allows ACRI to focus on its research vocation while having increased its coffers to finance its operations. In addition, she conducted strategic discussions with ACRI's close partners, namely the Université de Moncton, the Vitalité Health Network and the Center de formation médicale de l'Université de Sherbrooke to pave the way for a new research institute that will allow ACRI to better share its knowledge, create partnerships in research, and thereby increase its impact, its effectiveness and reduce its operational costs. Contributions that put ACRI on the right path to continue to make significant contributions to cancer research and to meet the needs of our population.
