A new era of life sciences research in Canada

The McGill Life Sciences Complex was inaugurated in 2008, and is celebrating its 10th Anniversary in September 2018.  Boasting a long history of collaboration between its teachers and researchers, McGill University took its deeply rooted research culture a giant step further with the opening of the multimillion-dollar Life Sciences Complex. Our landmark facility, the largest construction project in McGill's history, encourages even greater interdisciplinary research by bringing some of the world's key scientific talent under one roof, speeds up the process of translating discoveries into treatments and cures, and in the process strengthens Montreal's position as a leading hub of biomedical research in Canada and the world.
