Numerous changes have occurred over the last few months at the Centre de recherche en reproduction animale. Indeed, since September 2015, the CRRA is proud to welcome six new members from the Université de Montréal to the center: Drs. Serge McGraw, Sylvie Girard and André Tremblay from the CHU Ste-Justine, Drs. Greg FitzHarris and Julie Lavoie from the CR-CHUM and Dr. Puttaswamy Manjunath from the Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont.

Following the addition of these new members, the Executive Board of the Université de Montréal has approved the new status of the Center. Henceforth, CRRA will be known as the CENTRE DE RECHERCHE EN REPRODUCTION ET FERTILITÉ (CRRF). Some changes in the Board of Directors of the Center have been made to include the new Montreal members.

It is with enthusiasm that the CRRF will present, in the coming months, its new logo and its new website! Stay tuned!

The CRRA (Animal Reproduction Research Centre) is a research centre of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Montreal. It is located on the Saint-Hyacinthe campus, 75 km east of Montreal. When created, in 1972, its research program dealt with reproduction in large domestic animals. Today, it is among the largest research centres in this field in North America. We celebrated our 30th anniversary in November 2002, and our 40th in 2012.

Infrastructure support is provided by the University of Montreal. Funding for research projects is obtained from goverment agencies (provincial, federal), industry (producer's associations, pharmaceutical companies) and private foundations.
