Dr. Dupré is a neurologist at the CHU de Québec-Laval University, a Full Professor in the Department of Medicine of the School of Medicine (Laval University), and the Director of the Neuromuscular and Neurogenetic Disease Clinic of the CHU de Québec – Université Laval.

Dr. Dupré completed his medical training at McGill University and his residency in neurology at Laval University. He completed his postdoctoral training at the Montreal Neurological Hospital and Institute and at Harvard University. In 2007, he discovered a gene (syne-1) implicated in a new form of hereditary ataxia that has since been highly recognized internationally. Dr. Dupré also played an important role in the discovery of the involvement of the TARDBP in the etiology of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. He is now involved in several provincial, national, and international networks that contribute to the discovery of genes involved in neurological diseases. He has generated more than 100 original publications. Dr. Dupré’s remarkable achievements have earned him several awards, including the 2015 Quebec Society of Muscular Dystrophy Award – ALS component – related to his involvement in the Clinic for Neuromuscular and Neurogenetic Diseases.

The research component of the clinic has grown significantly in recent years, with the creation of the Québec Parkinson Network (rpq-qpn.ca). The network connects clinicians with basic science researchers in the field, giving access to a registry of nearly 1000 patients. In addition to his clinical program, Dr. Dupré is involved in research projects linking clinical and basic research. This is done in collaboration with Dr. François Gros-Louis, of the LOEX research center at CHU de Québec – Laval University. One of these projects aims to discover biomarkers of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis in the skin. Another important project Dr. Dupré takes part in focuses on the development of a reconstructed skin model to study neurofibromatosis. Finally, Dr. Dupré is actively collaborating with Dr. Gros-Louis to identify pathogenic mechanisms of intracranial aneurysms in the Inuit and French-Canadian populations and to develop in vitro models of the disease. This project has just been funded by CIHR for a duration of 5 years.
