As a distinguished researcher and the director of the Beaulieu-Saucier Pharmacogenomics Centre at the Montreal Heart Institute, Dr. Marie-Pierre Dubé pushes the limits of genetics to understand its wide-ranging impact on health. She took the time to explain the basic principles of precision medicine, which allows doctors to personalize patient treatment by analyzing their genetics.
While most health care professionals at the Montreal Heart Institute take care of a patient’s heart, Dr. Judith Brouillette, Director of the Psychiatry Department, provides care for their mental well-being.
A cardiac surgeon with an impressive backstory, Dr. Walid Ben Ali joined the Montreal Heart Institute in April 2021. Since then, he has been actively researching, creating, and perfecting tools that could revolutionize the world of cardiac surgery in the future. An encounter with an innovation enthusiast!

It’s often said that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree… But what if we could somehow make it roll a bit farther away by having a healthier lifestyle? Dr. Marie-Pierre Dubé, director of the Beaulieu-Saucier Pharmacogenomics Centre at the Montreal Heart Institute, demonstrates the important influence that various modifiable factors have on the genetically determined risk of heart disease.
“Some might be asking themselves why an institution like ours, dedicated to cardiology, studies the brain. That’s because the heart and brain are in fact inextricably linked. What’s good for one is good for the other,” said Dr. Bherer who is dedicated to finding ways to prevent conditions that affect these two key organs.
When he first landed in Montreal in 2005 to complete his post-doctorate with Dr. Jean-Claude Tardif at the Montreal Heart Institute, Dr. David Busseuil was still unaware that he would never return to Dijon. Several years later, he is now director of an impressive bank of biological samples and data used for clinical research, the André and France Desmarais Hospital Cohort at the Montreal Heart Institute, also known as the Biobank.
