1 Centre de recherche du Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CRCHUM) A hospital-based research centre oriented towards discovery, therapeutic innovation, non-invasive exploration of human beings and transfers to patients and populations
2 MissionTo improve the health of adults through a continuum of high-quality academic research.To provide a training environment that ensures renewal and a commitment to excellence.2
3 VisionThe CRCHUM is committed to excellence in the development of new knowledge. In keeping with the mission of the hospital, the CRCHUM improves the health of adults through an understanding of etiological and pathogenic mechanisms, the development, implementation and evaluation of new preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic strategies, and health promotion.The CRCHUM seeks to foster cross-disciplinary exchanges and to harmonize laboratory research collaborations for the benefit of patients and the population.
4 Main Partners Université de Montréal : Canada’s second-ranked university for income by researcherLargest faculty of medicine in Canada – encompasses all disciplines4th largest faculty of medicine in North AmericaCHUM :Quebec's largest teaching hospitalMore than 500,000 patient visits annuallyHeads up Quebec's largest integrated health networkCRCHUMInternational network of partnerships and alliances with the academic, industrial and public sectors
5 Major Strengths Cancer Infection, Immunity, Inflammation Cardiometabolic diseasesMusculoskeletal diseasesNeurosciencePublic HealthFebruary 2008The CRCHUM’s strengths and vision rated as “exceptional” by an external review committee of the Fonds de Recherche en Santé du Québec
6 Major Strengths Unique capacities in clinical research Phase I/IIa/IIb trialsPhase III/IV trialsOptimal integration of basic, clinical, epidemiological and evaluative researchUnique integration of public health researchHighly cross-disciplinary and multi-sector environmentEnhanced recruitment and training potentialMagnet for partnerships with industryBenefits for the populationDirect impact on health policy, care delivery and services in Quebec, Canada and abroad (developing countries)Knowledge and technology transfers to users – population, public sector, private sector

15 Research Themes Public health Three themes: Risks to health – ex: modifiable causes of cancer and HIV/AIDS, potential links between behaviour or the environment and a given disease.Global health – action-research in developing countries – health care equity, maternal mortality, chronic diseases and access to health care, consultancy service for health infrastructure projects.Health care system and services – health care system as a determinant of health, impact of modes of service organization on clinical practices, service quality and access to front-line services.Integration of researchers from regional health boards and the Institut national de santé publique du QuébecEnsures the link between basic and clinical research with regard to the behavioural and environmental (social and physical) bases of disease development.
