Word form the director

Welcome to the Quebec Respiratory Health Network,

The primary function of the network is to stimulate research in respiratory health in Quebec. The network has been in existence since 1994 and currently includes more than 90 researchers in various fields including pulmonology, respiratory physiology, molecular biology, data science, immunology, genetics, infectious diseases, toxicology and many others. These driving forces are working together to discover new mechanisms responsible for respiratory diseases, as well as innovative ways of managing and preventing these diseases in children and adults. The respiratory health network supports this public research, ensures knowledge mobilization, training of students and researchers and establishes the partnerships necessary to accomplish its mission. The many achievements of the respiratory health network are recognized by the Fonds de recherche du Québec Santé, as well as through our many international collaborations.


Thank you all for your involvement in oxygenating the respiratory health network and do not hesitate to propose initiatives that our Executive and Scientific Committee will be pleased to relay!
