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 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 great collaborations with colleagues and friends in Montreal and Boston (Broad Institute, Children’s Hospital Boston, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute).


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.
