Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, University of Toronto
Dr. Mathieu Lemaire finished his medical training at McGill University in 2004 and then moved to Toronto to learn Paediatrics at SickKids. After completing his fellowship in Paediatric Nephrology in Toronto, he went to Yale University (New Haven, CT) to pursue a PhD in Investigative Medicine under the guidance of Dr. Richard Lifton, with a focus on the genetics of rare paediatric kidney diseases. While there, he discovered two novel forms of atypical hemolytic-uremic syndrome using exome sequencing. Dr Lemaire returned to the University of Toronto in 2014 as Assistant Professor of Paediatrics (Faculty of Medicine). He joined the Division of Nephrology at SickKids as Staff Physician, and the Cell Biology program at the SickKids Research Institute as Scientist. Both in the lab and in the clinic, much of his work is focused on rare genetic diseases that affect the kidneys of children. He is cross appointed to the Department of Biochemistry and the Institute of Medical Sciences at the University of Toronto.
