The Meakins-Christie Laboratories is a leading pulmonary research centre located in Montreal (Canada) and affiliated with McGill University, one of the top ranked universities in the world. Our overall mission is to better understand the pathobiology of respiratory disorders across the lifespan. The ultimate goal of our efforts is to drive innovations in respiratory disease prevention, diagnosis, and therapy. Research is focused around five primary themes: Chronic Airways Disease, Lung Injury and Infection, Neuromuscular Dysfunction in Respiratory Diseases, Sleep-disordered Breathing, and Lung Cancer. Our faculty of world-class researchers work within the Translational Research in Respiratory Diseases Program at the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre.
