The CHU Sainte-Justine Research Center

Ensuring mothers and children health, from conception and pregnancy right through adulthood

The CHU Sainte-Justine Research Center is a leading Canadian mother-child research institution affiliated with Université de Montréal. It nurtures the vision of a Quebec where mother, child and adolescent health ranks among the best in the world. With this in mind, it is intent on fulfilling its mission of advancing knowledge and applying new findings with faster and less invasive methods and devices aimed at disease prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and long-term follow-up starting at conception and pregnancy and continuing right through to adulthood.

Bursting with talent

The Research Center gathers over 1,200 individuals, including more than 200 research investigators (including over 90 clinician-scientists), as well as more than 500 graduate and postgraduate students. Working closely with healthcare teams from six poles of excellence, Sainte-Justine’s research teams are engaged in fundamental, clinical, and translational research within either of the Center’s six research axes:
