October 25, 2017

Thanks to a $16M donation from the Azrieli Foundation, the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital of McGill University is creating the Azrieli Centre for Autism Research. The centre will be a hub for multiple approaches to autism research, including genetics and brain imaging. “This investment will make it possible for our McGill scientists to advance knowledge and make the breakthrough discoveries that are needed to understand autism and eventually provide hope for the many families in Quebec, in Canada and around the world who are living with this disorder,” said McGill Principal Suzanne Fortier, who thanked the Azrieli family and Azrieli Foundation for the donation. McGill
