Message from Dr. Rouleau: Research Ramp-up

Dear Colleagues,

I hope you have been keeping well.

We are presently establishing guidelines specific to the ramp-up of the research operations at The Neuro, in compliance with both McGill and MUHC protocols (ex: entry points and triage, movement within the complex, health and safety considerations, issues related to human resources, etc.).
