Armand Frappier: pioneer of preventive medicine

The Armand-Frappier Foundation

For nearly 25 years, the Fondation Armand-Frappier has shown vitality and commitment in the pursuit of its philanthropic work and has actively contributed to the advancement of health research.

The goal of the Fondation is to support the continuation of the work of Armand Frappier, the founder of the Institut de microbiologie et d'hygiène de Montréal, created in 1938. The institute took on the name of its founder in 1975, after its affiliation to the Université du Québec in 1972. A constituent of the Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS) since 1988, the INRS-Institut Armand-Frappier continues to excel in research in several areas related to public health, particularly in the fight against infectious diseases, and in training future researchers in master's and doctoral programs.
