Alexandre Bureau

I am professor in the Département de médecine sociale et préventive (Department of social and preventive medicine) of Université Laval in Québec City, where I have been since January 2005. I am also affiliated to the Centre de recherche de l'Institut universitaire en santé mentale de Québec (CRIUSMQ) where I am a researcher in the Clinical and cognitive neuroscience research axis.

I received my Ph.D. degree in Biostatistics in May 2001 from the University of California, Berkeley.

Research interests

My primary research interest is the statistical aspects of gene mapping in family studies, with a focus on rare genetic variants. I have been also investigating study design for genetic epidemiology studies. I have mostly worked on genetic linkage analysis in large pedigrees for my Ph.D. dissertation.
