Dr. Jacques Corbeil focuses on using the latest techniques in bioinformatics and machine learning to assist and facilitate the processes of diagnosis and prognosis determination and to optimize response to treatment. Modern genomic techniques generate a deluge of data that needs to be interpreted using novel bioinformatic approaches. Dr. Corbeil uses state-of-the-art instrumentation and big data analytics to facilitate the interpretation of complex phenotypic data. His research includes investigating how infectious microorganisms interact with their hosts, examining the effects of antibiotics on our microbial flora, exploring how to design small molecules and drugs to interfere with specific microbial functions and integrating omic data in cancer research. Dr. Corbeil operates at the interface of computer and omic sciences.

Dr. Corbeil completed his undergraduate work at Laval University. He obtained his Ph.D. from the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia, and received postdoctoral training at the University of California San Diego; continuing on as a faculty member and rising to the rank of Associate Professor until his return to Canada as holder of the Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Medical Genomics.
