2015-05-01: Congratulations to Nathalie Chami and Samuel Lessard who were awarded PhD scholarships from FRQS and CIHR! Geneviève Galarneau, former PhD student in the Lettre lab, also received a CIHR postdoctoral fellowship to continue her training at Mount Sinai (New York).
2013-10-11: An article with Dr Guillaume Lettre and Samuel Lessard as co-authors made the cover of Science.
My group is interested in the genetics of complex traits and common diseases in humans. Based at the Montreal Heart Institute, we aim to identify genetic variation that influences cardiovascular and haematological disease risk using high-throughput DNA genotyping and re-sequencing technologies, together with state-of-the-art computational and bioinformatics approaches.
The group is part of the Faculty of Medicine at the Université de Montréal. Many of our research projects are wonderful collaborations with colleagues and friends in Montreal and abroad (USA, UK, France, Switzerland, Kenya, etc.).
Opportunities exist for talented and motivated individuals (students, postdocs, fellows, programmers, bioinformaticians, and (bio)statisticians) to join our research activities. Please send email enquiries to Guillaume.Lettre [at] mhi-humangenetics.org .
