The University of Ottawa has partnered with the Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1 to launch a joint international neuromuscular research partnership. The UOttawa Center for Neuromuscular Research and University of Lyon’s Institut NeuroMyoGène will fund four major scientific projects on neuromuscular diseases over the next five years, and will also see Ottawa residents complete medical training in France and Lyon interns to train in Ottawa. “Agreements like these send a strong signal to students and faculty that the University of Ottawa is open to the world,” said uOttawa President Jacques Frémont. “Scientific cooperation contributes to collegial relations between countries and we are very proud to celebrate the great relationship between France and Canada.” UOttawa | Journal dé Montréal
