CIHR - Quebec Respiratory Health
Training Program
The Mentors
The CIHR - Quebec Respiratory Health Training Program involves more than 60 internationally recognized researchers, funded by CIHR and other agencies. Collectively, the applicants cover the four pillars of the CIHR and a wide spectrum of research and clinical expertise.

This unique team of mentors is a testimony to the excitement generated by this program. Half the Mentors are full professors. During the past five years, the Mentors have trained 316 students, obtained over $90 million in operating grants, and published over 800 peer-reviewed publications.
