The new Clinical Nutrition Research Unit (CNRU) state-of-the-art facility is poised to develop solutions to public health challenges and help us all lead longer, healthier and fuller lives.

The mission of the Clinical Nutrition Research Unit (CNRU) is to promote health and wellness among individuals and communities through a multidisciplinary, patient-oriented and community-based approach. Faculty members from the School of Human Nutrition (SHN) have combined their expertise to develop a cutting-edge research facility that enables impactful research to address the complex health, economic and societal challenges that have arisen from poor nutrition in recent decades. The former post office at 49 Rue Sainte-Anne in the heart of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue has been transformed to house a modernized CNRU, with an interior layout customized for the researchers’ needs, plus providing significant visibility in the community.

Given the vast scope of this project, we need donor support to ensure that the full extent of the research and outreach programs can be realized. With the core infrastructure already in place, the SHN is looking for donor support to help this unique facility deliver actionable solutions to major health challenges that will have an immediate impact on the community.
