Dr. Johnny Deladoëy receives the 2014 Charles Hollenberg Young Investigator Award from the Canadian Society of Endocrinology and Metabolism

MONTRÉAL, February 11, 2015 Dr. Johnny Deladoëy, an endocrinologist and researcher at the CHU Sainte-Justine, also a clinical associate professor in the Department of Pediatrics and an accredited professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine at Université de Montréal, received the 2014 Charles Hollenberg Young Investigator Award from the Canadian Society of Endocrinology and Metabolism (CSEM). This prize is awarded to support the research work of an individual who has been a faculty member at a Canadian university for between 5 and 10 years and has demonstrated excellence as an independent investigator in basic science. The CSEM is a national advocate for excellence in endocrinology research, education, and patient care, and its mandate is to advance the discipline of endocrinology and metabolism in Canada.

Dr. Johnny Deladoëy is a specialist in endocrinology and pediatric diabetology who studies the molecular mechanisms of congenital hypothyroidism (CH) secondary to a defect in thyroid migration shortly after birth. The CH is essentially sporadic and might be caused by a non-Mendelian phenomenon. Dr. Deladoëy’s research aims to identify the changes in the number of de novo copies on chromosomes and, at a somatic level, the epigenetic changes which are at the basis of this phenomenon, with the hope that the information that will be gathered applies to other more severe birth defects.
