Overview of the CHU Sainte-Justine Research Centre

Ensuring the health of children and mothers-to-be

Driven by a passion for excellence, we are committed to making Quebec into a place where the health of mothers-to-be, children and youth ranks among the best in the world. With this in mind, we are intent on advancing knowledge and applying new research findings in order to translate new discoveries into more efficient  and less invasive methods and devices aimed at disease prevention, diagnosis, prognosis, treatment and long-term follow-up starting at conception and continuing throughout the journey to adulthood.   

In recent years, various sources of government and philanthropic funding have paved the way for new leading-edge infrastructure and the development of large-scale national and international networks, cementing our leadership with regard to innovative, multidisciplinary research in mother-and-child health in Quebec.
