Armand-Frappier Santé Biotechnologie Research Centre

The INRS Armand-Frappier Santé Biotechnologie Research Centre contributes to research, training, and technology transfer in the fields of disease detection and prevention with a view to promoting human, animal, and environmental health.

The centre, which was founded in 1933 by Quebec vaccination pioneer Dr. Armand Frappier, continues a strong tradition of research emphasizing prevention and innovative solutions for public health issues like cancer, antibiotic resistance, and Alzheimer’s disease

Located in Laval, it is the only Canadian university research institution in the Institut Pasteur International Network. It is a hub for infectiology research in Quebec and is also recognized for its world-leading expertise in doping control.

Graduate students enjoy the benefits of quality supervision, cutting-edge equipment and laboratories, and a dynamic campus environment. The centre is involved in innovative research often conducted in partnership with industry and leading Canadian and international research networks.

Faculty pool their interdisciplinary expertise to better understand areas such as chronic viral infections, the connection between environmental pollutants and disease, and the potential for using microorganisms to develop biotechnology.

Through the Apprentis chercheurs (Researchers Apprentices) program and its partnership with Musée Armand-Frappier, the centre also offers high school students and the general public a fascinating glimpse into the world of health research.
