The Pharmacology Institute of Sherbrooke (IPS) venture is rooted in two disciplines in which the Université de Sherbrooke has distinguished itself at the international level: pharmacology and chemistry. A closer relationship between these two disciplines of excellence has laid the groundwork for the scientific venture to create the IPS in 1998.
Twenty years later, IPS now brings together 34 researchers from 10 departments and 3 faculties (Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Faculty of Science, and Faculty of Engineering). The IPS promotes interdisciplinary collaboration in the context of drug and diagnostic agent development, the validation of new therapeutic and diagnostic targets, and technologies to improve these processes.
