University of Montreal Hospital Centre, CRCHUM

The University of Montreal Hospital Centre hosts the largest of the University of Montreal’s affiliated research centers (CRCHUM). Its research activities draw on large cohorts of patients treated at the hospital centre, on 1,300 researchers, professionals, technicians and support staff, on life sciences students, on cutting-edge technological platforms, and on an international network of academic, public and private-sector partners.

Its mission is to generate knowledge along two complementary axes: upstream of the health system, it is a performance-oriented centre encompassing basic, clinical and epidemiological research; downstream, the CRCHUM evaluates the effectiveness of therapies and their impact and ensures knowledge transfer with a view to improving the health of the population.

CRCHUM has developed an integrated translational and multidisciplinary research model to explore the mechanisms of pathogenesis, to develop health promotion and prevention strategies, to establish criteria for the prediction of health risks and disease development, and to develop, implement and evaluate new therapies. - canadian online casinos
