Dr. Isabelle Bairati, MD, Ph.D., is a full professor in the Department of Surgery of the Faculty of Medicine at Laval University, a researcher at the CHU Research Centre of Quebec-Laval University (cancer axis), and a researcher at Laval University’s Cancer Research Centre. She carries out her medical activities as a medical consultant to the board of the Capitale-Nationale’s Public Health Department.
Since her postdoctoral training at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, USA, Dr. Bairati’s research activities have focused on epidemiology, and the clinical epidemiology of cancers. Her research has focused on the study of modifiable risk factors, including nutrition, on the occurrence of cancers, and their prognosis. More specifically, she was the principal investigator of a chemoprevention clinical trial, testing the effectiveness of antioxidant vitamins in preventing the occurrence of second primary cancers in patients with ENT cancer. This clinical trial has shown an adverse effect of high doses of antioxidants in patients with ENT cancer (J Natl Cancer Inst., 2005). During the last 10 years, her research has focused on the study of the prognostic effect of serum, tumor and genetic markers in ENT and ovarian cancers. As a public health physician, she is also interested in the impact of the organization of oncology health services on the prognosis and satisfaction of oncology clients.
