MDRC seeks to provide researchers with the best resources possible
to foster leading-edge research and collaborations. Hence, a number
of key activities have been centralized into service cores to optimize
the use of collective resources, and maximize the leverage power
of our funds. These cores offer services to both MDRC researchers
and the scientific community at large. Please contact MDRC@crchum.qc.ca
