Dr. Julie Robitaille is a trained nutritionist and completed her Master’s degree and PhD in Nutrition at Laval University. She subsequently completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, United States. Dr. Robitaille is a full professor at Laval University’s School of Nutrition, as well as a researcher at the CHU Research Centre of Quebec (Endocrinology and Nephrology) and the Institute of Nutrition and Functional Foods (INAF) of Laval University. Since the beginning of her career, her research has been funded by the FRQS, CIHR, CFI, Diabetes Quebec, Danone Institute of Canada, and Diabetes Canada.

Dr. Robitaille is interested in studying the maternal determinants of chronic diseases, such as obesity and type 2 diabetes, using gestational diabetes as a model. Gestational diabetes is defined as hyperglycemia that occurs or is first noticed during pregnancy. Nearly one in 10 pregnancies is complicated by gestational diabetes. This disease can have different consequences for the short- and long-term health of mothers and children, including an increase in the risk of obesity and type 2 diabetes. Dr. Robitaille’s work focuses on these different consequences on mother and child health. Her work also investigates postnatal lifestyle factors such as healthy eating, regular physical activity, and breastfeeding that can prevent the development of obesity and type 2 diabetes in mothers and children.
