Awais Javed

“I recently published my research work, and I do not think any of this would have been possible if I had done my Ph.D. in a different environment. I have been very lucky and fortunate to be able to do what I love with a fantastic group of people.”

Mariko Witalis

“My training at the IRCM allowed me to combine two passions: research and the clinical aspect. And the IRCM Foundation's Bombardier-Molson scholarship has really served as a catalyst for my career as a researcher.”

Yannick Cyr

“I chose the IRCM MCM master's program because it offers an innovative curriculum that allows students to study both clinical research needs and the latest technologies in basic research. The MCM program gave me an overview and guided my choice of doctoral studies at the Institute.”


Studying at the IRCM is a remarkable experience that has helped many students launch their careers. Read our alumni’s stories.
