Welcome to the Meakins-Christie Laboratories

Respiratory research centre in Canada: The Meakins-Christie Laboratories of the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC) and McGill University

The Meakins-Christie Laboratories is one of the premiere centres for pulmonary research in the world and Canada. The Meakins was founded in 1972 by Dr. Peter Macklem. It comprises the largest group of investigators within the Translational Research in Respiratory Diseases Program at the RI-MUHC. Our overall mission is to better understand the pathobiology of respiratory disorders. Our goal is to drive innovations in respiratory disease prevention, diagnosis, and therapy. As a result, our research is focused around four main themes: chronic airways disease, lung injury and infection, neuromuscular dysfunction in respiratory diseases, and sleep-disordered breathing.
