The Marcel-Piché Prize is awarded to an IRCM researcher in recognition of his research and his contribution to the growth and outreach of the Institut.
Marcel Piché, a Montréal lawyer specializing in corporate law, played an active role in the foundation of the IRCM. He was the first President of the corporation and remained with the organization until 1991. Throughout his career, he showed special interest in the IRCM and continually encouraged its expansion. He thereby made a significant contribution to the growth and outreach of the Institut. The IRCM’s management and researchers appreciate Marcel Piché’s valuable collaboration in the institure’s evolution, and recognize that few other organizations were lucky enough to benefit from such a visionary’s support.
