Presentation of the Institute and the IRCM post-COVID research clinic created by Dr. E. L. Falcone
Founded in 1967, the Montreal Clinical Research Institute (IRCM) is a non-profit organization that conducts basic and clinical biomedical research while training the next generation of scientists in an innovative environment. With approximately 425 employees and trainees, the Institute includes more than 35 laboratories conducting high-impact research in the fields of infectious diseases, immunology, cancer, neuroscience, cardiovascular and metabolic diseases, systems biology, and medicinal chemistry. The IRCM also operates specialized research clinics in long COVID, immunology, hypertension, nutrition, and diabetes.

The candidate selected for this posting will be supervised by Dr. Emilia Liana Falcone and therefore involved in different aspects of Dr. Falcone’s clinical and translational research program (herein referred to as Falcone lab).

Dr. Falcone is a physician and scientist specializing in infectious diseases. She is the Director of both the IRCM Post-COVID-19 Research Clinic and the Microbiome and Mucosal Defence Research Unit. The IRCM Post-COVID-19 Research Clinic (IPCO) was the first long COVID research clinic established in Montreal and represents a truly unique infrastructure where all patients are both clinically evaluated and enrolled in a research protocol with biobank aimed at understanding the long-term effects of SARS-CoV2 infection. More specifically, the objectives of the IPCO Research Clinic are to 1) understand and better manage the clinical manifestations of long COVID, 2) understand the causes of long COVID, 3) identify diagnostic biomarkers and new treatments for long COVID. The Microbiome and Mucosal Defence Research Unit focuses on studying the role of the microbiota in inflammation and immune dysregulation in inborn errors of immunity (i.e., patients with genetically inherited immune defects) and complex diseases or conditions such as long COVID. As such, the Falcone lab collaborates closely with the IRCM Adult Immunology Clinic and also leads several clinical immunology research protocols. 

This Falcone lab is a dynamic team that combines clinical care with cutting-edge clinical, translational, and fundamental research. The successful candidate will work in an energetic and solution-oriented environment that values equity, diversity, and collaboration.
