RESP  |  Translational Research in Respiratory Diseases Program

Our Researchers

The RESP Program is made up of basic, clinical, population health and outcomes researchers in both adult and pediatric medicine. The program will draw upon the broad expertise of scientists from the Meakins-Christie Laboratories (a centre for fundamental research into the pathophysiology of pulmonary diseases), the Respiratory Epidemiology and Clinical Research Unit (RECRU: a centre for epidemiological research, clinical trials, and economic analyses), as well as scientists from the Montreal Children's Hospital of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC), the Montreal Chest Institute of the MUHC, and other collaborating institutes.
