Over time, our work has led to countless major discoveries recognized worldwide. We study life to better understand and protect it.

The guiding principles
that unite us

Human > Science

We use science to support health. Humans are our priority; science is our tool.

Collaboration > Silos

We believe in the power of collaboration. The multidisciplinary nature and independence of our researchers are strengths that we value. We strongly believe that collaboration produces the best scientific results.

Innovation > Statu quo

We are curious and results-driven. We aren’t satisfied with resting on our past achievements. We are constantly innovating and our greatest discoveries are still ahead of us.

An open
and inclusive environment

Research is a process that feeds on collaboration and the exchange of ideas. The IRCM is a place where researchers, professionals, and students work together in a spirit of collegiality and where sharing different viewpoints is encouraged. We believe that everyone can contribute through their ideas and actions to the next great discovery that will take place within our walls.

« I really feel like I’m contributing to something
bigger than myself. I feel like I play a key role in
improving the health of all. »
