Research holds the promise of better ways to diagnose and treat disease. Investigators focus their work on very specific questions. To facilitate focus while encouraging collaboration across scientific disciplines, the RI-MUHC is organized into 11 research axes (research programs).
With the redevelopment of the RI-MUHC at the Glen site and at the Montreal General Hospital, research will centre on research programs to encourage integration of clinician and evaluative scientists into fundamental research groups in order to foster intellectual synergy.
Our axes are focused on research into specific diseases, on the study of genetics, genomics or health outcomes areas of science which are relevant across the whole spectrum of health care, and on the investigators' work with colleagues in other axes.
