Dr Lawrence Rudski, MD, FACC, FASE
Dr. Rudski completed his cardiology training at McGill and his echocardiography training at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard University. He is a Professor of Medicine at McGill University and practices at the Jewish General Hospital. He has served on the Board of Directors of the American Society of Echocardiography. Dr Rudski provides guidance in echocardiography-related projects, as well as collaboration on cardiac imaging with the population of patients within the McGill University network of hospitals.
As part of the Neonatology Division at the MCH,I collaborate with all the clinicians and investigators within the division. I have established close collaborations with all of the neonatologists and neonatal nurse practitioners. As a team, we work in an environment that strives to create knowledge in order to improve the outcomes of our patients. Our academic environment is vibrant, and practices are renewed with an evidence-based approach.
The Montreal Children's Hospital is a quaternary-care pediatric centre that is part of the McGill University Health Centre. As such, I collaborate with numerous investigators throughout the institution. My current collaborations are in cardiology, respirology, neonatology, neonatal follow-up, and surgery (CDH clinic).
The MUHC - Research Institute is one of the largest Canadian research institutes. The beauty of being part of the MUHC-RI can be found in its cross-disciplinarity. The Institute allows me to create wonderful collaborations with researchers in the fetal, pediatric, and adult world. Working here has provided me with opportunities to develop brilliant research projects in transnational medicine, bringing fundamental sciences to the bedside.
I have numerous colleagues and collaborators at the CHU Sainte-Justine. More specifically, I work on projects with Dr. Anie Lapointe, lead in neonatal echocardiography and Dr Anne-Monique Nuyt, pioneer in outcome research of the premature newborn.
I have kept important links and collaborations with Stanford University and investigators at the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital. I am still involved in research related to premature newborns, newborns with hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, newborns with congenital cardiac defects, newborns with omphalocele, and newborns with congenital diaphragmatic hernia.
As part of the CNN, the Montreal Children's Hospital investigators, including myself, have tight collaborations with investigators interested in neonatal outcomes across Canada.
Dr. Pia Wintermark and her team are close collaborators. They are interested in studying newborns with hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, as well as other types of neonatal brain injury mechanisms.
