Dr. Laforce obtained his PhD in Clinical Neuropsychology in 1998 and worked as an Assistant Professor in Cognitive Neurosciences before completing his studies in Behavioral Neurology in 2011. He performed a short 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 FDG-PET and amyloid PET with Dr. Gil Rabinovici (University of California, Berkeley). He was co-leader of the Neurology class at Laval University for 5 years. He is a Clinician and Researcher in CHU de Québec Research Center, member of the C5R (Consortium of Canadian Centres for Clinical Cognitive Research) and RQRV (Réseau Québécois de Recherche sur le Vieillissement). Dr. Laforce obtained several major grants (CIHR, Weston Brain Institute), presented at national and international meetings, published over 100 scientific papers in prestigious journals such as Lancet Neurology, Brain, Neurology. He wrote a book on memory as well as several book chapters. Dr. Laforce is one of the PIs in the great international endeavour 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. He holds the Chaire de Recherche sur les Aphasies Primaires Progressives – Fondation Famille Lemaire (https://app-ffl.ulaval.ca/).
