I have a Master’s of Science degree in Neurological Science whereby I participated in research dedicated to advancing the understanding of the origins of the constellation of symptoms know as Metabolic Syndrome. Since graduating in 2009, I worked in clinical research at the Montreal General Hospital. My tenure there has taught me much, both about the state of health care and its consumers. I have reached the conclusion that my research interests and academic experience would be better served

The focus of our research is to characterize the myocardial metabolic changes that underlie right heart failure in the context of pulmonary hypertension (increased resistance of lung vasculature). The cardiac adaptation to chronically increased workload depends on the efficiency of myocardial energy generation. The latter defines heart adaptation (maintained cardiac output) or maladaptation (reduced cardiac output) in the long term. We are testing a new treatment strategy to improve myocardial m
