Research Day - General Information & Archives

We make an effort to unite the members of our research network annually, to allow them to discuss their work, exchange their ideas, and create new collaborations. Through these activities, we help to create a close-knit and multidisciplinary  community among Quebec’s researchers in suicide and mood disorders.

The 2016 Research Day will take place on November 22.
