The new dates will be fixed soon.


Dear friends and colleagues,


For its fourth edition, the provincial conference of mother-child research breaks the new by setting up for the first time a theme: decompartmentalized health.


From planning a pregnancy to the fetal period, from birth to early development of the child, to the adolescent and his or her behaviors, health cannot be understood outside of its broader context that includes environment, family, infrastructure and community. This research decompartmentalization, at the intersection of several individuals, ages and disciplines, facilitates the emergence of new knowledge, both in basic and clinical research. This is the only way to approach the complex problems and contemporary challenges in mother-child research.


This congress aims to:

1. Allow the meeting of researchers and students around the mother-child research;

2. Facilitate the exposure of participants to new themes / research disciplines;

3. Serve as a dissemination site in Quebec Province for the latest advances in mother-child research.


The CHU de Québec-Université Laval research center is pleased to host, on May 21 and 22, 2020, the provincial Conference on Mother-Child Research. Co-sponsoring several institutions in the greater Capitale-Nationale region, it brings together the scientific activities of more than 500 researchers, 1000 students and 1400 employees grouped into 7 axes of fundamental and / or clinical research.


Abstract submission will be opened on January 6th, 2020.
