Mélanie Drolet

Epidemiologist, Senior Research Associate
PhD in Epidemiology, Laval University, Canada

Mélanie has a BSc in health sciences (physical therapy), an MSc and a PhD in epidemiology from Laval University. Her research focuses on the epidemiology and prevention of infectious diseases and cancer, as well as and on the psycho-social impact of these diseases.

During her PhD, Mélanie was interested in the psycho-social impact of breast cancer. Then, she coordinated various projects at the INSPQ in order to assess the relevance and feasibility of implementing a screening program for colorectal cancer in Quebec. In 2008, she joined our team to cement our expertise in epidemiology. With her knowledge in epidemiology, she ensures that our models validly reflect the natural history of diseases as well as the effect of the different interventions evaluated.  In parallel, she develops and oversees various projects aiming to estimate the burden and the impact on quality of life of infectious diseases; these data are essential to our cost-effectiveness analyses.  Melanie has published over 40 articles in scientific journals; she teaches epidemiology at the Faculty of medicine.
