Invest in Breathtaking Research. And Breath-Giving Care.

We take more than 500 million breaths in our lifetimes. Most of us don’t think twice about it. But for those living with respiratory diseases, every breath is a struggle. Respiratory diseases are on the rise globally. Over 3 million people die from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) annually, an estimated 6% of all deaths worldwide. 235 million people suffer from asthma. And outdoor air pollution causes over 4 million premature deaths each year.

At the Montreal Chest Institute (MCI) of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC), we are working tirelessly to ensure our patients breathe easier. We provide highly specialized patient care. Conduct cutting-edge medical research. And train the next generation of respiratory specialists. But we still have work to do.

We need to Dream Big to help patients Breathe Easier.
