Construction of ophthalmology laboratories

On September 20, 2011, the HMR Foundation hosted the Antoine Turmel Foundation to honour its founder, Antoine Turmel. The HMR Foundation paid tribute to Mr. Turmel and his family for their extraordinary donation that was used to create the Antoine Turmel Laboratories, dedicated to ophthalmology research.

Thanks to a sizeable donation from this foundation, researchers in ophthalmology, along with the holder of the Léopoldine A. Wolfe Chair, have moved into new state-of-the-art laboratories on the third floor of the Polyclinique Maisonneuve-Rosemont. One of their areas of focus is macular degeneration, a cause that is close to the Turmel family’s heart.

The HMR Foundation and the Ophthalmology Department are proud to rely on the unfailing support of the Antoine Turmel Foundation. On behalf of countless patients, we thank you.
