MeDiC researchers

The Metabolic Disorders and Complications Program (MeDiC) brings together a team of outstanding research scientists who share the goal of developing new diagnostic tools, treatments and health policies for obesity, diabetes and osteoporosis, along with their complications, including kidney failure, heart disease, fatty liver/cirrhosis, dementia and stroke.

More than one in three Canadians are affected by common and chronic metabolic disorders. The MeDiC Program unites multidisciplinary researchers to study these problems in both adults and children. Each member of the MeDiC program is also affiliated with at least one of the research centres at the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre: the Centre for Translational Biology, the Centre for Innovative Medicine and the Centre for Outcomes Research and Evaluation.

To learn more about the MeDiC program, visit our Events, News and Contact Us pages.
