Dr. Louise Pilote is a Professor of Medicine at McGill University where she holds a James McGill chair. She led the division of general internal medicine from 2006-2016. As a clinician scientist, Dr. Pilote has directed several research initiatives that led to important new insights into the determinants of premature coronary disease. Her work clarified the role of sex and gender in diagnosis, treatment and outcomes in heart disease. Dr Pilote recently launched the GOING-FWD consortium a data science, personalized medicine project funded by CIHR and the European GENDER-NET+ initiative, where 30 million patients with chronic disease across Canada and Europe will be analyzed using a sex and gender lens to more precisely predict their risk of clinical and patient-relevant outcomes. As a co-principal investigator of the CAN-AIM team, funded by CIHR, Dr Pilote has also harnessed big data to study sex differences in the effectiveness and safety of cardiac drugs and devices.
