Dr. Hubert Doucet

Dr. Hubert Doucet has been a professor at the Université de Montréal since 1997, where he holds appointments in the Faculties of Medicine and Theology and is Director of the Programs in Bioethics. He also chairs the university's Research Ethics Board. From 1981 to 1997, Dr. Doucet was Professor of Bioethics at St Paul's University in Ottawa and has been a member of Research Ethics Boards at a number of hospitals affiliated with the University of Ottawa.

His research has focused on the history and foundations of bioethics, on issues related to death in the context of technological developments in health services, on the conditions for democratic debate in an environment marked by economic pressures, and on the challenges to research ethics created by an increasingly bureaucratic approach to the issues. In 2002, he published a guide on research ethics for health researchers, L'éthique de la recherche: Guide pour le chercheur en sciences de la santé.
