The cardiology component includes 67* researchers, 115 nurses and research professionals, as well as 118 graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. The Institute itself has one of Canada’s highest clinical and scientific cardiology volumes, and has the highest such volumes in Quebec. The research development potential is therefore enormous for clinician scientists and basic researchers. Moreover, significant effort is made to channel these potential and foster productive two-way relationships between clinicians, clinician scientists and basic researchers. A committee evaluates clinical research proposals on a monthly basis and encourages researchers to pool their expertise in order to enhance all research projects. Unique yet complementary in relation to the work done by other Quebec research centres, the cardiology component enjoys international standing in a number of areas.
