CRCHUM’s Grand Labo is a philanthropic event with a unique atmosphere, shining the limelight on researchers. The event highlights the importance of their research while raising funds dedicated entirely to research activities. On October 15, 2015, the sixth edition of this gala held at Montreal’s Arsenal on the theme of the Art of Research drew some 340 people and raised $407,000. Mr. Lucien Bouchard, a partner at Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg and former premier of Quebec, chaired the evening hosted by Stéphan Bureau. Our guest of honour Dr. Robert J. Lefkowitz, Nobel Prize winner in chemistry in 2012, emphasized the links between art and research, with imagination driving scientific creation.

Organized in collaboration with the Fondation du CHUM, the CRCHUM Challenge is a charitable activity that encourages people to raise money by running or walking to support research. The event is part of the Défi Caritatif Banque Scotia 21k in Montreal. The donations collected by participants that are allocated to the CRCHUM are redistributed in scholarships for our students and postdoctoral fellows, so they can contribute to research.
The seventh edition of the CRCHUM Challenge, held on April 24, 2015 at Parc Jean-Drapeau, brought together 193 participants and raised almost $69,000.
