Having completed a Master’s degree in pharmacology and another in health research methodology, Dr. Lamontagne has been employed as a clinician-scientist by the Université de Sherbrooke since 2010. He has set up a research team that consistently runs, in parallel, numerous clinical studies in acute care. Dr. Lamontagne was subsequently mandated by the Sherbrooke Clinical Research Centre to create a methodological unit with a view of supporting academic, investigator-initiated clinical research activities. The multidisciplinary research team ‘Unité de Recherche Clinique et Épidémiologique’ is now a highly valued resource province-wide, which continues to grow at a fast rate.
Dr. Lamontagne has personally received peer-reviewed funds from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and the Fonds de Recherche du Québec – Santé and is currently leading three multicentre critical care randomized clinical trials. His other activities include knowledge translation projects, such as systematic reviews and guidelines, including collaborations with the World Health Organization.
