Dr. Pouliot obtained doctorates in medicine (M.D.) and in Physiology-Endocrinology (Ph.D.) from Laval University. After completing a residency in Urology (F.R.C.S.C.), he did a post-doctoral fellowship in Urologic Oncology and molecular imaging at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Since 2010, he has practiced as a urologist-oncologist in the Quebec City University Hospital Center. He is also an associate professor in Laval University’s Department of surgery. He oversees the CHU de Québec multidisciplinary clinic in castration-resistant prostate cancer. In 2014, he was the recipient of the Prostate Cancer Canada/Movember Rising Star Award. He is also the recipient of the FRQS Clinical Research Scholars Junior 1 and 2 and Senior. His clinical and preclinical research interests include the detection and characterization of high risk, advanced and metastatic prostate cancers using transcriptional amplification systems or positron emission tomography (PET) with tracers such as fluoro-deoxyglucose or PSMA ligands (PyL, MP-1404).  He is also involved in the development of new radioligand therapeutics.

His research program has four aims: 1) To develop a dynamic imaging method based on a transcriptional amplification system allowing the sensitive detection of a luminescent reporter gene under the control of prostate cancer specific promoters. This microscopy method will allow predicting the patient’s response to antiandrogen treatments. 2) Use positron emission tomography imaging (PET/CT) as a quantitative method to identify the very high risk prostate cancer and to assess metastasis individual response, in addition to global response to systemic treatment. 3) Develop a prostate cancer immunotherapy based on a transcriptional amplification system specific to prostate cancer. This vaccine vector will allow the introduction of recombinant genes in patient’s prostate cancer cells to induce an efficient immune response against cancer cells.  4) Characterize the androgen receptor (AR) activation in castration resistant prostate cancer patients. This project aims to determine which steroids activate the AR under chemical castration and to identify new AR interacting partners using proteomics.
