The Research Chair in Cerebral Palsy at Université Laval was officially created in 1991 to amass funds dedicated to research in cerebral palsy.  By 2003, a sufficient amount had been collected and Dr. Carol L. Richards was appointed chairholder with the mandate of promoting research in cerebral palsy at Laval University.  This site was created to promote the research team associated with the Chair’s activities and their projects.  The site is also intended to serve as a showcase for the latest research around the world and related events.
