Welcome to the Life Sciences Complex

The Life Sciences Complex brings together world-class researchers and resources to translate biomedical discoveries into urgently needed diagnostics, treatments and cures.

Life Sciences Complex

About Us

Interconnecting McGill students and professors across campus and located in downtown Montreal, the complex includes the Bellini, McIntyre, Stewart, and Cancer Research buildings.

Research Themes

Developmental Biology

This field has the power to uncover fundamentally new biological processes and to revolutionize drug discovery by identifying new categories of molecules essential for healthy life.

Cancer Research

Investigators at the Goodman Cancer Research Centre examine interactions between genes and proteins, contributing to innovative developments in the treatment and cure for cancer.

Chemical and Structural Biology

An exciting emerging field focused on the design or identification and the exploitation of novel small molecules as tools to investigate questions in biology.

Cell Information Systems

Another developing field created by revolutionary breakthroughs in the study of genomics, Cell Information Systems investigates the ways cells pass information from one to another.

Complex Traits

This innovative area of research will help determine how multiple genes interact to cause disease, and what role environmental factors play in this development.
