Biography

A CIRANO Researcher and Fellow since 2010, Mélanie Bourassa Forcier is Associate Professor at the Faculty of Law of the Université de Sherbrooke. She directs the programs in Health Law and Policy and Life Sciences Law. She has expertise in the regulatory framework relating to the marketing and reimbursement of new medical technologies. She is particularly interested in their potential use to make a health care system more efficient, the incentives that encourage their development and the standards that may represent barriers to their implementation in health care systems.

Holding a Ph.D.in Pharmaceutical Patent Law from McGill University, she is currently focusing her research on the legal issues (privacy, patents, marketing, liability) related to the implementation of artificial intelligence in the health sector. She has been called upon to present various conferences in London and in the United States on the subject. Professor Bourassa Forcier has edited and published numerous books and articles on the subject of pharmaceutical regulation and health law.

She holds an M.Sc. in International Health Policy from the London School of Economics and Political Sciences and an LL.L. (summa cum laude) from the University of Ottawa. She has been the recipient of a number of prestigious awards and fellowships, including a SSHRC Doctoral Fellowship and the Commonweatlh Fellowship.
