Research & Discovery

So.  What’s on Your Mind?

Discovery has been one of the driving forces in making McGill the premier research academic institution in Canada and one of the Global Top 10 in Medicine and Life Sciences.

Neuroscience remains one of McGill’s top research priorities. Current priority areas span many Departments and Centres to advance knowledge transfer between clinicians, basic neuroscientists, neuropharmacologists, psychologists, chemists, physicists, engineers, and computer scientists.

Research in the community is guided by two beliefs:

  • The internationalization of our activities - a traditional trademark of McGill. Every year also sees an increase in our collaboration throughout Canada.
  • The absence of borders. Our research is not confined by disciplines. For example, thematic groups in psychopharmacology, bi-polar illness, schizophrenia, suicide research, sleep and eating disorders explore the neuroscientific basis of major psychiatric illnesses of modern society.
