Research Programs

Research has been and continues to be a priority of the Montreal General Hospital Foundation (MGHF) thanks in large part to our generous donors and our partnership with the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) (RI). Together with the RI, the MGHF and other MUHC foundations present more than 80 awards to leading medical and nursing clinical researchers at the Annual Research Awards.

The main goal of the Awards program is to facilitate the launch of research projects and provide researchers with seed funding so that they can prove their merit and move to the next stage of development and research grant application.

Thanks to strong donor support, and in many cases from donor endowed funds at the MGHF, the program has contributed to the recruitment and retention of nationally and internationally recognized clinical researchers. In 2016, the MGHF and other MUHC foundations invested in excess of $3 million in awards and scholarships to fund research specialists and various initiatives.
