The cardiology component includes 74* researchers, 1 visiting scientist, 116 nurses and research professionals, as well as 125 graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. The Institute itself displays a high clinical and scientific cardiology volumes, in fact the second largest in Canada after the University of Toronto’s network. The research turns out to be also very competitive with an international influence that makes Quebec proud. Therefore, the potential and the attractiveness aspects of our research ecosystem are enormous for clinician scientists and basic researchers. In this regard, we are significantly focusing to increase 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 these projects. Unique and complementary in relation to the works done by other Quebec research centres, the cardiology component of the Institute’s Research Centre demonstrates international global leadership recognized in several areas. The quality and the impact of the cardiac researchers’ work carried out within the Institute have allowed this component to receive the highest rating in its history during the last FRQS assessment in 2018.
