Since 2008, the Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital Research Centre has been experiencing unprecedented growth. Between 2008 and 2016, there was a significant increase in numbers, which characterizes the Centre’s scientific activity:
With an additional 8 research investigators recruited in the last three years, the CRHMR now has 41 clinical and basic research investigators: 34.84 full-time research investigators recognized by the Fonds de Recherche en Santé du Québec (FRSQ), and 18 associate research investigators. The Centre continues to conduct target recruiting in all research areas, and plans to recruit additional research investigators in the next few years.
The CRHMR attaches fundamental importance to training and advancement programs for graduate and postgraduate students so that they may develop into qualified professionals poised to further scientific knowledge and to improve people’s health. It also provides an attractive work environment to students, who wish to study in a number of leading-edge biomedical research fields.
Since 2007-2008, the total number of students increased by 53%.
Communicating and circulating new skills and knowledge are at the very core of our scientific activities, and publications reflect the vitality and productivity of a research centre and its investigators.
Between 2008 and 2016, the total number of CRHMR publications increased by 128%, reaching a total of 135 publications for 2016.
The grants and awards that are allocated to CRHMR investigators and students by organizations consisting of peer committees are a testament to their vitality and to the acknowledgement they receive on behalf of the scientific community.
This funding, recognized by the FRSQ, has increased by 150% between 2008 and 2017, reaching close to $10.8 million.
