Partners

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 $5.7 M, either 62% 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 numerous scholarships as well as several research fellowships and grants. Over the course of 2016, the Foundation awarded $1,196,970 in research competition, for teaching purposes and in fellowships to researchers as well as $120,000 into the biobank as contribution funds. These grants help us in the completion of numerous research projects and provide the leverage needed to obtain outside funding.

Grand Défi Pierre Lavoie and Grand Défi Entreprise

Several researchers, research professionals and students were part of teams representing the Institute in preparation for the Grand Défi Pierre Lavoie's 1,000 km cycling challenge. 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).
