Research axes

The Centre de recherche de l’Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont (CR-HMR) has 3 main research axes: immunology-oncology, vision health and nephrology.

These 3 axes overlap with the areas of excellence at Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont (HMR) and are grouped under the central themes of cellular and molecular therapy and regenerative medicine.

The CR-HMR also has research teams whose activities fall outside these main axes. These teams include the research group on problems of the musculoskeletal system as well as a number of other clinical research groups.

The CR-HMR is recognized both nationally and internationally thanks to the work, expertise and talents of our researchers.

  • Immunology-oncology
