Our centre’s research themes are central to global health priorities and a major strategic force for halting the progress of non-communicable chronic diseases and their devastating effects. Our centre is unique because our research components perfectly complement the Institute’s clinical missions. This enables health professionals and researchers to work in total synergy to the greatest benefit of patients. This synergy turns research findings into better care. Our research teams harness this synergy for the integrated study of the metabolic triggers of cardiovascular and lung diseases, as well as to develop innovative and competitive Quebec research in disease prevention and treatment.
