CHHD  |  Child Health and Human Development Program

Our Researchers

The Child Health and Human Development Program (CHHD) is made up of basic and clinical researchers both at the new Glen site and offsite. These researchers vary in their research interests; some study fertility and its associated mechanisms, some study the processes of fertilization and development, and others study a broad range of physiological and psychological diseases in children leading to adulthood.

Our researchers at the Centre for Translational Biology (CTB) at the Glen site mostly perform basic research in fields of biochemistry, proteomics, and genetics, among other subjects. Those who perform clinical and epidemiological research belong to the Clinical Outcomes Research Evaluations (CORE) part of the program. Some of our members who only perform clinical research do so at the Centre for Innovative Medicine (CIM) located at the Research Institute. CHHD members hold Scientist or Investigator affiliations at the RI-MUHC, and several of our members are affiliated as Associate Investigators.

Below you will find a list of our members with links to their research profiles
