Our New Research Programs

Besides transferring their labs and offices to new sites, our investigators reorganized the RI-MUHC community this spring. Formerly grouped in research axes, they have formed the following new research programs. At least 15 researchers crossing the spectrum of clinical, basic and evaluative research have selected their leadership and built a new "neighbourhood" in each of these programs. More information will soon be available on the website.
