Venture Lab

The Venture Lab supports research on adolescent brain development and risk factors for mental health and substance use disorders. Led by Dr. Patricia Conrod, Professor of Psychiatry at the Université de Montréal, the research team is developing and testing new mental health promotion strategies by studying the influence of genetic, environmental, and neuro-developmental influences on mental health and addiction.

Based out of CHU Sainte-Justine’s Research Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Venture Lab features an international roster of scientists conducting a number of important research projects with a key focus on neurodevelopment, personality, building resilience and early intervention.  Dr. Conrod's brainchild, the PreVenture Program, is also hosted at the VentureLab, where PreVenture experts are trained, and provide training and supervision to health and educational professionals from around the world.
