All of our valued partners are listed below. We wish to single out a few in particular for their significant contributions to our work.

Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR)

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) are key granting agencies for our researchers. Each year, a number of them receive grants, awards or fellowships enabling them to advance their research. In the past year, CIHR funding accounted for 56% of the amounts our researchers received from granting agencies recognized by the Fonds de recherche du Québec - Santé (FRQS). 

IUCPQ Foundation

Our Research Centre can also count on the support of the IUCPQ Foundation, which has contributed funds towards the Centre’s phases of expansion and finances an annual contest as well as several research fellowships and grants. This year, as part of the contest, the Foundation awarded over $931,201 to Institute researchers so that numerous research projects could be brought to fruition. In many cases, the grants provide the leverage needed to obtain outside funding.

Grand Défi Pierre Lavoie and Grand Défi Entreprise

A number of researchers, research professionals and students take part in the Grand Défi Pierre Lavoie 1,000 km cycling challenge on teams representing the Institute. Their involvement shows to what extent the research community is committed to taking concrete action to promote healthy lifestyle habits to young and old alike. In addition, the Institute and the cofounders of the Grand Défi Pierre Lavoie have joined forces to create the Grand Défi Entreprise, which is now one of the Centre’s cardiovascular prevention research priorities. Under the scientific direction of Dr. Natalie Alméras, the Grand Défi Enterprise harnesses the cardiometabolic and respiratory expertise of our researchers. Its objective is to reach employees in their workplace to encourage them to adopt healthy lifestyle habits (e.g., being active, not smoking, eating a healthy diet).
