CDTRP Research Connect Series
The CDTRP is pleased to host its new discussion-based meeting series called “Research Connect“.
This series streamlines the subset of Theme, Hub, and Working Group meetings that aimed to share and discuss the latest research findings across the network and our Webinar series, which featured national and international speakers. Theme, Hub, and Working Group meetings aimed at developing new initiatives, projects, or grants will be scheduled separately, approximately three times per year per group.
The series takes place every other Tuesday at 1-2 pm EST.
Our goal is to make it easy for our members to know about and attend high quality presentations across all Themes and topics of interest. We are aiming for active discussions including researchers, trainees, and patient, family, and donor partners, engaging the whole community as if we were having a family dinner rather than listening to a formal presentation.
Dr. Michaël Chassé & Dr. Nicolas Sauthier – The challenge of missed organ donors: Can machine learning be used for early identification of potential donors?
On April 4, we were pleased to have Dr. Michaël Chassé, critical care physician at the Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM) and senior scientist at the CHUM Research Centre, and Dr. Nicolas Sauthier, Anesthesiology Resident and Master’s student in biomedical sciences at Université de Montréal, to present on the topic: “The challenge of missed organ donors: Can machine learning be used for early identification of potential donors?” as part of the CDTRP Theme 1 – Improve a Culture of Donation.

About Dr. Nicolas Sauthier
Nicolas began his education with a bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering at Polytechnique Montreal. Afterwards, he completed a medical training and residency in Anesthesiology and Critical Care at the University of Montreal. The combination of technology and health has always been fascinating to him, especially the valorization of massive databases and their use to solve concrete clinical problems. This motivated him to do, in parallel to his residency, a master’s degree in biomedical sciences, option computational medicine, under the supervision of Dr. Michaël Chassé.
