MONTREAL, May 13, 2017 – For a second year in a row, CLEARGOALS teamed up with the Institut de recherches cliniques de Montréal (IRCM) / Montreal Clinical Research Institute (IRCM) for their annual IRCM Challenge 2017. The IRCM’s mission is to raise money to support research, technological development and training programs for health science students. CLEARGOALS is one of many IRCM partners that has contributed to building a stronger medical community and brighter future. The IRCM Foundation helps recruit renowned researchers such as Dr. Jean-François Côté as well as aspiring young researchers to improve technology within the Universite de Montreal’s laboratories. The IRCM’s recent discoveries help to fight against deadly diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Breast cancer and many more, to improve society’s well-being.
Why support health research? Why the IRCM Challenge?
Research is fundamental to innovation and in the medical world, any small discovery can lead to life changing developments. Choosing to support a foundation like the IRCM, is choosing to support scientific progress that will hopefully one day treat the world’s most fatal diseases. This contribution helps society’s well-being and promotes tomorrow’s researchers who will face similar challenges. An example of the IRCM’s work, are the Doctoral students of the l’Université de Montreal research clinics who study deadly diseases such as Type 2 Diabetes.
