THE PROMISE OF BETTER HEALTH
Is there a genetic roadblock for cancer? How do we start a global health revolution?
Outstanding health sciences research and teaching date back to the beginning of McGill. Today our professors and researchers are at the forefront of targeting deadly diseases like cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and obesity. They are tackling global health challenges through international partnerships – from addressing inequities in resources and access to health care, to conducting research into infectious disease. They are exploring new frontiers in oral health and pain management, and investigating what contributes to well-being across the lifespan. And they are making discoveries in human genetics that weren’t possible even a few years ago – discoveries that will transform health and human wellness.
