Journées Québécoises en Santé Respiratoire 2018

The "Journées québécoises en santé respiratoire" will held on November 21st and 22nd 2018, at the Centre Hospitalier de l'Université de Montréal (CRCHUM) research center, on 900 Saint-Denis street, Montreal.

The new formula of our annual conference will be done this year in collaboration with the Réseau de Thérapie Cellulaire et Tissulaire du Québec.

Please note that the "Journées québécoises en santé respiratoire (JQSR)" of the Respiratory health network should not be confused with the event organized by the Quebec Lung Association.

Invited speakers

Dr Bernard Thébaud from University of Ottawa, will speak about his work on the use of stem cells as therapy for various respiratory diseases.

Dr. Thébaud studies the mechanisms of lung development, injury and repair in order to design new treatments for incurable lung diseases. Dr. Thébaud has set out an ambitious research program for his lab in order to study clinically-relevant questions for translation into real-life applications. Over the next five years, his goal is to bring safe and effective cell-based therapies for lung diseases into the clinic, and thereby create vast improvements in patient outcomes.

Dr Philippe Duquenne, a researcher at the Institut national de recherche sur la sécurité et la santé au travail (INRS) in France, will talk about occupational exposure to non-infectious bioaerosols and of the associated risks.

Dr. Duquenne obtained his PhD in Microbial Ecology at the Université de Bourgogne (France) in 1998 for his work on microorganisms of the ground. He joined the INRS teams in 2003 as a microbiologist scientist to work on the methods of measuring bioaerosols (sampling, analysis) and strategies for assessing occupational exposure. He also led the project national "risques biologiques" of the INRS. His research focused on airborne microbial particles (cells, propagules, spores) and compounds (endotoxins, glucans) under laboratory conditions (bioaerosol chambers) and real ones. His projects have focused on the use of real-time PCR for bioaerosol studies, the quantification of (1-3) - & beta; -β-D-glucans suspended in the air, the use of flow cytometry and PMA-PCR for measuring the biological effectiveness of biocollectors. He also works on measuring the size distribution and biodiversity of bioaerosols. He now leed a laboratory specialized in the analysis spatiotemporal exposure to chemical and biological pollutants.

Other speakers

Dr Ynuk Bossé, Dr Anne-Marie Lauzon, Dr Grégory Moullec, Dr Basil Petrof and Dr Emmanuel Charbonney will present their results in the context of projects financed by the RHN while Dr Étienne Fortin-Pellerin, Bruno-Pierre Dubé and Olivier Boucherat will make us discover their work supported by our mentoring young researchers program.
