The iREx consists of a growing team of over 50 people (professors, postdocs, research assistants and students) mostly from UdeM and McGill University all working on various research programs focused on the study of exoplanets and related fields of stellar astrophysics. Members of iREx are actively involved in large international projects related to the detection and characterisation of exoplanets such as the JWST, SPIRou and NIRPS. More information on iREx research programs can be found here.
