Clinical research

Clinical research

The clinical research sector has nearly 200 clinician researchers and 100 professionals who work on over 30 research teams. Every year, approximately 700 clinical trials and 150 new trials are conducted by clinician researchers or in partnership with biopharmaceutical companies.

The clinical research sector has three main areas: clinical trials; translational research, including tissue banks and registries; and evaluative research, technological development and educational research.

Clinical trials

Clinical trials assess the effects of new or existing drugs, biological treatments, or medical devices that have the potential to improve a pathological condition in humans. Clinical research in this theme covers many medical specialties including cardiology, surgery, microbiology, anesthesia, neurology, rheumatology, gastroenterology, radiation-oncology, gynecology, pediatrics, intensive care and orthopedics.

 

Translational research

Translational research, tissue banks and registries

This theme serves as a link between fundamental research and clinical research. Its pivotal role is optimized through tools such as the :

Evaluative research

Evaluative research, technological development and educational research

Evaluative research, technological development and educational research play a key role in the CR-HMR’s scientific program, whether in its three areas of excellence or in the orthopedics sector, which the program also supports. Orthopedics and physiotherapy are areas in which Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont has renowned clinical expertise, and the CR-HMR’s researchers in this sector have been recognized by the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Santé (FRQS).
