Dr Jean-François Ethier professor-researcher at the Université de Sherbrooke and the Center for Research at the CRCHUS (Sherbrooke University Health Center). He is also the codirector of the Groupe de recherche interdisciplinaire en informatique de la santé (GRIIS.ca). He has extensive collaborations in Europe and is an associate researcher at the INSERM UMRS 1138 in Paris. He received his medical training from McGill University where he graduated MD CM in 2006 and completed his residency in internal medicine in 2011. He subsequently completed a Master STS (public health) and a PhD in health informatics in Paris at Paris IV (Université Pierre-Marie Curie).
His research focuses on methods to support learning health systems (LHS) by putting the patient at the center of platforms to support integrated research, knowledge transfer and care delivery. More specifically, his projects target semantic interoperability between health and research infrastructures, temporal data operations to support complex health data queries as well as formal models (ontologies) to link care, research and connected personal devices (quantified self).
