    Career Summary

    Following my residency at McGill and Harvard, I completed my training in clinical gastroenterology and GI research at the University of Colorado where I subsequently stayed for 4 years as a member of the department. Except for sabbaticals in Geneva (1975) and in Paris (1989), I have been at the University of Montreal and at the CHU Sainte-Justine since 1970. I successively occupied the position of Director of the Research Centre (1977-1982), Head of the GI Service (1982-1991) and Director of the Department of Paediatrics (1991-1995). After serving for 6 years on the Council of the MRC (CIHR), I became Director of Programs (1995-1999).

    My laboratory was funded for 25 years without interruption by the CIHR, by the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and intermittently by the industry. Research topics, which have captured my interest and monopolised my efforts in the past decade, can be listed as follows:

    • Metabolism of PUFAs
    • Peroxidation of lipids and peroxisomal function
    • Hepatobiliary disease in cystic fibrosis
    • Disorders of chylomicron formation and secretion
    • Experimental and clinical studies on a lipid matrix which improves fat absorption in CF
