Dr. Leduc-Gaudet completed his bachelor in Kinesiology and his master degree with a particular focus on mitochondrial biology, skeletal pathophysiology and aging at Université du Québec à Montréal.

Following his M.Sc., he completed his Ph.D. studying the regulatory roles of autophagy & mitophagy in the maintenance of skeletal muscle health under the supervision of Drs. Hussain and Gouspillou (McGill University), where he received a Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship.

In his research, Dr. Leduc-Gaudet combines genetic, molecular, cellular and physiological approaches to investigate signalling pathways regulating skeletal muscle mass and function. He is currently a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Sandri’s lab (U Padova, Italy), working on characterizing novel genes and molecular pathways that control skeletal muscle health. He is currently supported by a FRSQ postdoctoral fellowship. Dr. Leduc-Gaudet enjoys sharing his passion and enthusiasm for research.
