IVADO’s Health Pulse

IVADO’s Health Pulse is the name of our new quarterly newsletter dedicated to researchers, teachers, professionals and students involved or interested in digital health!

Quebec and Montreal in particular are recognized as centers of excellence and innovation in digital intelligence on the one hand, and in biomedical research and life sciences on the other.

At IVADO, we are committed to supporting the digital health ecosystem from discovery to innovation. We have funded over $11M in grants and research projects to date, and our 10 expert IVADO professors help stimulate research in this emerging field. We have contributed to the establishment of the Consortium en santé numérique (CSN) on the Université de Montréal campus. Innovators and entrepreneurs in this sector also benefit from our support: for example, four of our Entrepreneur Postdoc Fellowships are involved in health projects. In parallel, we work daily to develop collaborative research projects with our industrial members, including Imagia and MIMs, two of the most promising Quebec start-ups in this sector!

In the context of the pandemic, we have been able to count on the mobilization of our IVADO community to propose solutions to the various problems caused by the crisis. We are supporting these 9 projects to support the global effort to fight COVID.

We are therefore privileged to collaborate with the different actors of these ecosystems in digital intelligence and health, and to encourage networking and collaborative projects to collectively advance research and initiatives in digital health.

With this strategic positioning, we wish, through IVADO’s Health Pulse, to share news of the ecosystem, training opportunities, events and funding on a larger scale, in order to multiply the possibilities of collaboration in a multidisciplinary perspective. Talent is vital to the development of the digital health ecosystem and we believe that such a communication tool will fuel exchanges and promote interactions between you, experts from different disciplines involved in the development of digital health!
