Brief Bio:

Dr. Mathieu Lemaire finished his medical training at McGill University in 2004 and then moved to Toronto to learn Paediatrics at The Hospital for Sick Children. After completing his fellowship in Paediatric Nephrology in Toronto, he went to Yale University (New Haven, CT) to pursue a PhD in Investigative Medicine under the guidance of Dr Richard P. Lifton, with a focus on the genetics of rare paediatric kidney diseases.

Dr. Lemaire returned to the University of Toronto in 2014 as Assistant Professor of Paediatrics: he joined the Division of Nephrology at The Hospital for Sick Children as a Staff Physician, and the Research Institute as Scientist-Track Investigator.
