    Career Summary

    Dr Stefan Parent, MD, PhD, Principal Investigator, is a Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon and a Clinician-Scientist with a focus on spinal deformities. He holds several grants either as principal investigator or co-investigator in the fields of scoliosis progression, growth modulation of the spine and chest cage and in the development of various other animal models. He recently received a Canada Foundation for Innovation Leaders Opportunity Fund to establish a Pediatric Orthopedic Experimental Surgery Laboratory at the CHU Sainte-Justine. This laboratory was specifically created to develop animal models of growth modulation of the spine.
