Project in progress

Research is at the heart of the CRRF, with more than 50 ongoing research projects funded by several large provincial agencies as well as industry and academic funds.

The CRRF has also numerous collaborators inside and outside of Canada. A list of these collaboration and research projects is available in the annual reports in the Publications section of the website.

In addition, the CRRF is hosting the Réseau Québécois en reproduction (RQR) financed by the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Nature et Technologies (FRQNT). The RQR is a group of about 100 researchers and 250 students working in the field of reproductive biology coming from from seven universities: Université Laval, McGill University, Université de Montréal, Université de Sherbrooke, Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières, Université du Québec à Montréal and the INRS. RQR researchers are also from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, OVO Clinic, Fertilys, Conception and Boviteq.
