Key Programs

McGill faculty are currently involved in at least 200 projects in 50+ countries that span the gamut of Schools, Departments, Institutes and Centres within and outside of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences. The development of trauma registries in low-resource settings by McGill surgeons, psychosocial aspects of coping with cancer in Canada and India, creation of public-private partnerships for tuberculosis in India, and drug discovery for neglected tropical diseases exemplify the diverse range of research McGill faculty are conducting in global health fields.

McGill University is located on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. McGill honours recognizes and respects these nations as the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on which peoples of the world now gather. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
