Dr. Bernard Thébaud obtained his MD at the Université Louis Pasteur in Strasbourg, France in 1991. He trained in pediatrics and neonatology at the University Paris V in France, where he also obtained his MSc and PhD before completing a two-year postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Alberta. Dr. Thébaud is a clinician-scientist recruited to Ottawa from Edmonton in 2012 to accelerate the translation of stem cell-based therapies for lung diseases. He is a senior scientist with the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute and a neonatologist with the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO), where he provides care to critically ill newborns. Dr. Thébaud studies the mechanisms of lung development, injury and repair in order to design new treatments for incurable lung diseases. Over the next five years, his research goal is to bring safe and effective cell-based therapies for lung diseases into the clinic to create improvements in patient outcomes.
