Bio

Dr. Anne Dagnault specialized in the treatment of lung and breast cancer, and cancers of the skin and of the digestive tract. She worked as a radio-oncology expert in the thoracic tumours clinic of the Hôpital Laval, the breast tumours clinic of the Hôpital Saint-Sacrement, and the digestive tumours clinic of the Hôtel-Dieu de Québec. Moreover she was actively involved in treatment using breast, esophageal and bronchial brachytherapy. She contributed to implementing the breast brachytherapy technique at the Hôtel-Dieu de Québec. She devotes part of her time to basic and clinical research.

Why Choosing Breast Cancer?

Breast cancer is a type of cancer she was always interested in. Additionally, since so many women are affected by it, the benefits derived from advanced research in this area can be quite significant.

A Scientific Accomplishment You Are Proud of

I’m proud of having developed the brachytherapy technique using permanent implants in Quebec.
