The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences of Université de Sherbrooke (FMHS) is central to health professional training, as well as to the health research and development ecosystem of the Eastern Townships. It plays a pivotal role, with the CIUSSS of Estrie-CHUS, in providing high quality medical education. Multidisciplinary research activities span the entire spectrum from the basic to the clinical sciences, and from molecular to patient-centered aspects.

In step with society’s health needs, the FMHS recently built a state-of-the-art Applied Cancer Research Pavilion, and is currently planning a future scientific research facility that will bring together our experts in the areas of bioinformatics and health-data analysis in order to optimize the impact of research results on clinical practice. On four sites (Sherbrooke, Saguenay, Longueuil et Moncton), FMHS professors supervise over 200 research teams, including over 820 graduate students.

Our 6 main research themes:

  • Mother and Child
  • Inflammation and Pain
  • Cancer: Biology, Pronostics and Diagnostics
  • Diabetes, Obesity and Cardiovascular Complications
  • Aging
  • Health – Populations, Organization, Practices.

From acute and chronic infections to rare diseases, the FMHS conducts world-class research, in molecular and metabolic imaging, RNomics and pharmacology. The FMHS also has experts in the area of health innovation implementation, in the areas of practices and technologies, as well as in the areas of organization and management of health and social services. Our Clinical Simulation Laboratory offer a unique set-up for training. We also offer customized training, for instance, in the areas of radiopharmaceutical production, motivational interviews for immunization, dataset analysis, video-assisted surgical approaches, etc.

Whatever your need may be, our experts will be glad to help. The FMHS offers you all the tools required for drug and biomedical technology development, as well as for their adoption by clinical practice settings. Please feel free to contact us, whatever your need may be such as expert advice, clinical opinions or consultancy or to access our technological service platforms, our health datasets and tissue banks, our research models (cellular, organoid or animal) or our highly qualified personnel to help you to optimize your projects.
