He performed a Fellowship in frontotemporal dementia under Dr. Bruce Miller at the Memory and Aging Center, University of California San Francisco. He conducted brain imaging studies using FEG-PET and amyloid PET with Dr. Gil Rabinovici (University of California, Berkeley). He has been the co-leader of the Neurology class at the Laval University Faculty of Medicine, since 2012. He is a Clinician and Researcher in the CHU de Québec research center, member of the C5R (Consortium of Canadian Centres for Clinical Cognitive Research), RQRV (Réseau Québécois de Recherche sur le Vieillissement), and CINQ (Consortium d’Imagerie en Neurosciences et santé mentale de Québec). Dr. Laforce obtained several major grants (CIHR, Weston Brain Institute, RMGA), presented at national and international meetings, published over 100 scientific papers in prestigious journals such as Lancet Neurology, Brain, Neurology, Neuroimage, Alzheimer Research and Therapy. He wrote a book on memory as well as book chapters. Dr. Laforce is one of the Principal Investigators in the great international endeavours GENFI (Genetic Frontotemporal Dementia Initiative) and DIAN (Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer Network). He leads several research projects on the development of cognitive tools (www.dcqtest.org et www.quoco.org) and the clinical utility of molecular imaging such as FDG-PET and amyloid PET in the differential diagnosis of atypical dementias.
