About Stéphane Laporte

"Dr. Stéphane Laporte is a Professor of Medicine, and the Director of Research of the Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism at McGill University. He is also an Associate Leader of the Experimental Therapeutics and Metabolism Program and the Director of the Molecular Imaging Platform at the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC). He is a member of the Executive Committee of the Réseau québécois de recherche sur les médicaments. He has received many awards, including a Canada Research Chair, FRSQ scholarships and the CDA/CSEM/Merck Frosst Young Investigator award. His expertise is in molecular pharmacology and his research program focuses on the molecular and cellular mechanisms regulating G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) responses, a class of receptors involved in many, if not all, physiological responses, with the ultimate goal of improving drug action. He has developed innovative methods for in-cellulo measurement of protein-protein interactions, receptor trafficking and signalling, useful for drug discovery programs. His research program also studies the allosteric, biased signalling regulation of GPCR and has contributed to the validation of small molecules that block myometrial contraction in pre-term birth. He has contributed to the generation of many intellectual property agreements and patents, and published his findings in high-impact journals. The Canadian Institutes for Health Research and March of Dimes currently support his research."
