The Institut de recherches cliniques de Montréal (IRCM), founded in 1967, is a non-profit organization devoted to understanding the causes and mechanisms of diseases in order to find diagnostic tools and means of prevention and treatment, training tomorrow's scientists and contributing to Québec's socio-economic development by facilitating the commercial development of new discoveries. Recognized as one of the top-performing research centres in the country, the IRCM currently houses 37 specialized research laboratories working in fields as varied as medicinal chemistry, molecular biology, functional genomics, clinical research, biomedical engineering and bioethics. Near than 450 people work at the Institute. Our researchers are key players in the vast scientific and medical network whose active involvement fosters the national and international collaborations that are so essential to the advancement of science. The IRCM’s mission as a training centre is crucial. We are helping to educate the next generation of scientists, training more than 150 young scientists every year. These young researchers will put the scientific and technical experience they acquire at the IRCM to excellent use, contributing to the development of research, the success of pharmaceutical and biotechnology firms and the launch of high-tech companies. The IRCM’s investment in training also generates direct spin-offs for the knowledge economy. All IRCM research scientists have appointments at the Université de Montréal and most of our laboratory directors are also adjunct members of McGill University. Our researchers and students are totally dedicated to training the next generation of front-rank scientists.
