Dr. Isabelle Brunette, MD, FRCSC

2023 Planning Committee - Ocular Regenerative Medicine
Participates in 2 items
After completion of a clinical and research training in ophthalmology (Université de Montréal), corneal transplantation and corneal endothelium (Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN), and refractive surgery (Emory Eye Clinic, Atlanta, GA), Dr. Brunette started her practice in 1990 as an ophthalmologist at Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont (HMR), Montréal.

Dr. Brunette is full professor in the Department of Ophthalmology of the Université de Montréal. She is head of the Cornea Service at the HMR Department of Ophthalmology, head of Vision Health Research at the HMR Research Centre, and director of the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Santé’s Research in Vision Network. She has successively been member, vice-chair, and chair of the Institute Advisory Board for the Institute of Neuroscience, Mental Health and Addiction, Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).

As a clinician, the driving force behind her research comes from the patient. Her work is oriented toward translational research and is funded mainly by CIHR and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. Her research has been focusing on the optimization of the functional outcome of corneal transplantation, based on leading edge progress in the fields of tissue engineering, femtosecond laser and biomaterials technologies.

Financial disclosure: Dr. Brunette does not have any affiliation (financial or otherwise) with a commercial organization.
