2019 Career Award
CRCHUM honours Jacques A. de Guise for his exceptional scientific contributionsFriday, January 24, 2020
Our colleague, Jacques A. de Guise from the Systems Engineering Department, has received a well-deserved honour! This week, the CHUM Research Centre presented him with its 2019 Award of Excellence in the Career category. This Award recognizes exceptional scientific contributions throughout the career of a researcher.
“A career award? I hope this doesn’t mean I’m being put out to pasture!” Jacques stated with his customary humour. A pioneer in many areas related to medical imaging, Jacques understands how to integrate a superior-quality approach and partnership with his patients into his research programming in an extremely original and innovative manner. Focusing on the Living Lab approach, which unites the clinician, the industrial sector and the patient at the core of academic research, the teams headed by Jacques A. de Guise have stood apart for their commitment to listening to their patients-partners in order to ensure that the research has a real impact on their lives.
Since the very beginning of his career, he has mastered the art of building bridges between various disciplines (engineers, clinicians and industry) and introducing innovative initiatives, as evidenced by his recent project, which is funded by the Audace program administered by the FRQS.
It is worth noting some of the prestigious affiliations that Professor de Guise has accumulated. In addition to being a Professor at ÉTS and an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Medicine’s Department of Surgery at Université de Montréal, he is responsible for the Imaging and Engineering research theme at CRCHUM. He also holds two research chairs: the Canada Research Chair in 3D Imaging and Biomedical Engineering and the Marie-Lou and Yves Cotrel Research Chair in Orthopaedics, operating out of the Faculty of Medicine’s Department of Surgery at Université de Montréal.
Jacques A. de Guise is the founder of the Imaging and Orthopedics Research Laboratory (LIO), which is affiliated with ÉTS, the CRCHUM and the research centres at Centre hospitalier universitaire Sainte-Justine and Hôpital Sacré-Cœur in Montréal. The LIO is the birthplace for many innovations, including the low-dose biplane X-ray imaging system that is now being marketed by EOS Imaging, and Knee Kinesiography, also known by its commercial name, KneeKG (Emovi).
