Research Activities

The 32 Professors and their 4 colleagues in clinical biochemistry direct cutting-edge research programs on a wide range of topics in the fields of biochemistry and bioinformatics. In addition, we count 40 accredited and adjunct professors in the Department, most of them in UdeM-affiliated Research Institutes and Hospitals (BRI, CR-CHUM, HMR, IRCM, IRIC, MHI, Ste-Justine) and they augment the diversity of our research and graduate training environment .

Over 200 students are enrolled in our graduate programs and together with numerous postdocs and research professionnals they conduct research in one or more of eight themes focussed on unraveling the molecular mechanisms of life and of medicine.
