It is with profound sadness that we learn the loss of Dr. Jacques Genest Sr. on January 5th, 2018. Our institute wishes to extend its sincere condolences to Dr. Genest’s family, the IRCM, and the entirety of the life sciences community. Dr. Genest was, without a doubt, a unique visionary who contributed to the development of biomedical research in Quebec. He will always remain in our memories, a pioneer in modern research and the founder of one of the leading institutes in our country, the IRCM.
