The year 2008 marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Institut Armand-Frappier

The INRS-Institut Armand-Frappier, a constituent of the Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS), is contributing to the efforts of Quebecers in research, training, and technological transfer in the areas of human, animal, and environmental health. The Center, regrouping about fifty professor-researchers, is using its important expertise in immunology and microbiology to understand how microorganisms, cancer cells, or transplanted organs influence the immune system.
