Speaker: Dr. Guillaume Poliquin, MD, PhD

Dr. Poliquin completed his medical degree at Western University prior to pursuing a paediatrics residency at the University of Manitoba, followed by a fellowship in paediatric infectious diseases also at the University of Manitoba.

After residency, Dr. Poliquin joined the Public Health Agency of Canada’s National Microbiology Laboratory’s (NML) Special Pathogens Division for a Ph.D. focused on Ebola virus.

He has since assumed the role of Medical Advisor to the Scientific Director General at the NML, and is now acting Vice President. These roles are rounded out with a paediatric infectious diseases consultative practice in Winnipeg, as well as general paediatrics practice in remote communities in northern Manitoba and Nunavut.

Dr. Poliquin’s research portfolio is primarily focused on vaccine research and emerging pathogens, such as Ebola and, more recently, SARS-CoV-2.
