In this section and the following, contributions to development of the sleep sciences, the increasing scope of research interests, and the clinical and research objectives of the members of the Center are presented.
In the Clinic section, you have access to an overview of the most common sleep disorders and are introduced to the clinical team devoted to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of the sleep pathologies that are experienced by our patients. In order for you to familiarize yourself with our environment, this section also provides information on our doctors, technical team and installations, and on how to obtain a clinical consultation.
The Research section features details about our research teams, their leaders, their scientific themes and interests, and their current activities and technological advances. A new generation of scientists recently joined our group of internationally renowned researchers and has enabled even more enriched and diversified collaborations. With the establishment of novel, original and innovative research themes and installation of the latest technologies, the CARSM is sure to remain in the forefront of progress in sleep research.
On the other pages of our website, you will find information about what types of participants we need for a variety of sleep and neuroscience studies and how to participate in ongoing studies, as well as notices about what human ressources may be needed by our different research teams.
We wish you a very pleasant exploration of our site. Its creation was made possible by the precious collaboration and continuous efforts of Gaétan Tremblay, Nadia Gosselin, Dominique St-Pierre, Hélène Blais and Dominique Petit.
