Let's plan together the future of health research !


Hello everyone,

It is my pleasure to invite you to the Journées de la recherche 2019 du CHU de Québec - Université Laval organized by the Comité des évènements on May 30 and 31, 2019.


As we often say, planning is the key to success. These two days will be an opportunity to exchange and showcase our great achievements of the last years; from the researcher's and their team's realizations to the formation and development of our future researchers, as well as our center's reputation on the national and international scene.


Let's plan together the future of health research within our center. May the presentations, workshops and discussions that you will experience within these days lead you to innovation, excellence and collaborations. 


Don't hesitate to come present your results and your plans: we are waiting for you in large numbers!





Serge Rivest, Ph.D.

Directeur du Centre de recherche du CHU de Québec – Université Laval



Dear colleagues,


Registration for this event is mandatory for all. Please use the registration and submission tabs hereabove.

Instructions: abstracts are limited to 300 words. The selection of talks and posters will be communicated to you in the beginning of May.

You can choose one of these themes:

  1. Clinical and translational research: Any study containing patient cohorts or aiming to produce clinical applications based on fundamental research.
  2. Imaging techniques: Any project requiring imaging techniques to analyze cells, tissus or animals: utilization of different microscopy techniques, X rays, luminescence, etc.
  3. Molecular mechanisms of biological functions: Any project that aims to elucidate molecular mechanisms or pathways implicated in biological process and functions.
  4. Use and development of animal models: Any study implicating animal models of human diseases. The advantages and limits of the models may be discussed.
  5. Cellular, tissue models and biomaterials: Any project using cell, cell lines or tissue culture and/or biomaterials.
  6. Immunology: Any study implicating immunology, including but not restricted to the fields of cancer, neurology, metabolic conditions, inflammatory diseases, autoimmune diseases, degenerative diseases, reproductive system.
  7. “Omics” approaches: Any project using the technologies of genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, etc.
  8. Bioinformatics and artificial intelligence: Any project implicating a considerable use of biostatistics, bioinformatics, big data and artificial intelligence.
  9. Public health: Any study focusing on population data, epidemiology, or sustainable health.
  10. Drug study and development: Any project containing drug development aspects, may it be at the synthesis level (chemistry), the development (molecular targets) or delivery (clinical phase).

We look forward to seeing you, 


The organizing committee
