Biography:
Dr. Chaput’s research focuses on obesity prevention and the adoption of a healthy lifestyle. He is also interested in new determinants of obesity such as lack of sleep and mental stress. Dr. Chaput has published more than 200 peer-reviewed scientific articles, has an h-index of 28 and 2703 citations according to Scopus. He has been able to secure over 1.5 million dollars in research funding over the last 5 years as Principal Investigator. He serves on many editorial boards and advisory committees, and has contributed to a large number of conferences around the world (>100 lectures). He received several awards for his research, including the Roger Broughton Young Investigator Award from the Canadian Sleep Society (2015), the IJO New Faculty Award from World Obesity (2014), the New Investigator Award from the Canadian Obesity Network (2011), the New Investigator Award from the International Association for the Study of Obesity (2010) and the Ethan Sims Young Investigator Award from The Obesity Society (2005).
