Research Programs

Program Overview

Driven and inspired by investigators of the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC), the restructuring from research axes into programs is rooted in our Research Strategic Plan. The proposal to the Canada Foundation for Innovation for new facilities included the creation of themes that would represent the scientific foci of research neighbourhoods, physical segments of the Centre for Translational Biology (CTB) at the Glen and Montreal General Hospital (MGH) sites. Our researchers have now articulated those themes in the form of full-blown interdisciplinary programs.

Bringing together a minimum of 15 investigators who identify with common themes across the three pillars of basic, evaluative and clinical research, each of the new RI-MUHC research programs was designed by its members. Each has been tailored to optimize existing strengths, create new synergies across and beyond the organization, and maximize opportunities afforded by the highly interactive new facilities at the Glen and the renovated facilities at the MGH site.
