14th Scientific days of the CRCHUM


A flagship science outreach event of the organization since 2010, the CRCHUM’s Scientific Days is built around lectures given by researchers of exceptional renown.

The 2023 event will be particularly significant, as our research community celebrates 10 years of bringing together its expertise in basic, clinical and population health research under one roof. This year's event will feature a number of high-profile scientific speakers.

In addition to plenary lectures, the Scientific Days offer a program of more general sessions, in a workshop format. These parallel sessions will be an opportunity for you to learn about new trends in research and its impact on health, but above all, it's an opportunity for you to take part in the discussion.

Every year, more than 350 people attend the event.

Event in person, Pierre-Peladeau Amphitheater, Pavilion A, CHUM
