The Clinical Innovation Platform (CLIP) at the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre is a state-of-the-art facility within the Montreal General Hospital of the MUHC (MGH), designed to help health tech startups develop and grow.
In addition to newly renovated research and meeting space, the CLIP provides access to mentorship from strategic industry experts and key opinion leaders, pre-clinical and clinical trial services, rapid prototyping and laboratories for product development.
Our modern space located in the heart of the Montreal General Hospital (MGH) provides the ideal environment for health tech companies to fuel their ideas. We offer closed and open office space, conference rooms for up to 50 people, and a lounge area, as well as soon-to-be launched laboratories for prototyping, dry, chemical, tissue culture and microscopy work.
We help propel projects into commercialization.
Our state-of-the-art facility provides the opportunity to build a health tech startup while creating meaningful connections with key players in the field. Ideally located in the heart of a hospital setting, companies will benefit from a wide range of services and expertise.
We offer office space, laboratory space (coming soon) and access to other centres of excellence, including the McConnell Centre for Innovative Medicine (CIM) and the Steinberg Centre for Simulation and Interactive Learning.
The McConnell Centre for Innovative Medicine (CIM) offers a full range of clinical research services in a state-of-the-art environment to develop and evaluate new treatments for some of the world’s most critical diseases. The CIM staff members offer expertise in clinical trials management, quality control monitoring, project management of multicentre trials, data management and statistics, and assistance with on-site specialized equipment dedicated solely to research. The CIM is equipped with a fully functional Experimental Operating Room, which can accommodate a variety of simulation activities as well as human subjects in the context of clinical trials. More information is available on the Centre for Innovative Medicine webpage.
The Steinberg Centre for Simulation and Interactive Learning uses the latest medical simulation technologies to enhance the skills of health care professionals. Fully integrated into McGill's medical and health sciences programs, it provides hands-on training in difficult and potentially dangerous procedures without risk to patients. The Steinberg Centre works with MedTech companies and clinical innovators to help transform their ideas into concrete and viable solutions for the health care market, offering a unique simulated hospital setting in which to understand clinical needs, test innovative ideas and technology, and establish the necessary proof of concept for nascent medical technology. More information is available on the Steinberg Centre website.
The Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC) is a world-renowned biomedical and healthcare research centre.
