Université de Montréal
CRCHUM is the largest research centre affiliated with Université de Montréal. Almost all the Centre’s 439 researchers are affiliated with the Faculty of medecine, the École de santé publique de l’Université de Montréal (ÉSPUM), the Faculty of Pharmacy, the École de réadaptation or the École Polytechnique Montréal. These researchers divide their time between research, teaching activities and, for many, clinical practice.
The CRCHUM also has links with the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) and TÉLUQ, to which some researchers in the imaging and engineering section belong. These connections are essential to offering our researchers and students a cross-disciplinary environment conducive to discovery and innovation. The Imaging and Orthopaedics Research Laboratory (LIO), among the first living laboratories in Quebec, is a perfect example of this.
The development of collaboration with other research centres in Quebec to increase the overall research capacity in health is a priority for CHUM’s Director of Research. These institutions are mostly FRQS research centers.
We also collaborate with many partners: universities, businesses and companies located in Canada and throughout the world. The CRCHUM strongly supports the development of formative networks in its fields of excellence, thereby increasing its research capacity and international competitiveness. The institution’s leadership is recognized notably in the FRQS networks and several networks across Canada.
- Cancer research network (RRCancer)
- Réseau sida et maladies infectieuses (SIDA /MI)
- Cardiometabolic health, diabetes and obesity research network (CMDO)
- Quebec network for research on aging (RQRV)
- Canadian critical care trials group (CCCTG)
- Canadian national transplant research program (CNTRP)
- Réseau national de collaboration sur l’hépatite C (RNCHC)
CATALIS – Early clinical research
Supported by Montréal In Vivo, the Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal, the McGill University Health Centre and the Centre hospitalier universitaire Sainte-Justine have joined forces with various industrial partners to make Montreal a global centre of expertise in early clinical research. This initiative, launched in January 2015, promotes the clinical research expertise of Montreal hospitals, thereby contributing to development of the life sciences and health technology cluster in the greater Montreal area.
