Vue sur ma Science | 1st Edition

The CRCHUM is proud to present its first scientific photo contest for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and residents conducting research at the CRCHUM.

The Vue sur ma Science competition is dedicated to images resulting from research carried out across all CRCHUM research themes (cancer, cardiometabolic, health innovation and evaluation hub, imaging and engineering, immunopathology, and neuroscience). Selected images will be widely diffused, and all profits from the sale of the winning artworks will be donated to the CRCHUM student committee.
