About Claude Perreault

Dr. Claude Perreault is principal investigator and one of the founding members of the Institute for Research in Immunology and Cancer (IRIC). In addition to his research and training activities at IRIC, Perreault is a clinical practitioner at Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont where he set up both the Histocompatibility Laboratory and the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit.

Claude Perreault and his team focus their research initiatives on three questions: What are the mechanisms responsible for the development of T-lymphocytes? What is the molecular definition of the immune self? How can we manipulate the immune system in order to cure cancer?

Dr. Perreault’s ultimate goal is to provide solutions to two pressing problems: cancer and the ageing of the immune system.


He holds a Canada Research Chair in Immunobiology, is a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences, and was awarded the Murray Margarit Memorial Award in 2009 (Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada) and the Léo-Pariseau Award (ACFAS) in 2011.
