Christian Pagnoux, MD MSc MPH

Trained in France, Dr. Pagnoux graduated from medical school in 1995 and completed his post-graduate training in internal medicine and clinical immunology in Paris in 2002. He was then appointed as assistant professor in the departments of internal medicine, first at Pitie-Salpetriere then in Cochin Hospital, in the division directed by his long-time mentor Professor Loic Guillevin, who created the French Vasculitis Study Group (FVSG). He has served since 2003 as vice-president of this research group and continues to be involved in several therapeutic trials and cohort studies in vasculitis conducted by FVSG in France or by the European Vasculitis Study Group. Dr. Pagnoux also obtained a Master’s degree in advanced immunology from the Pasteur Institute in 1999 and another in methodology of clinical trials from the Diderot University in 2008.

After completing from 2010 to 2012 a two-year vasculitis fellowship in Toronto sponsored by the Vasculitis Clinical Research Consortium, he decided to stay in Canada and was appointed as a full-time faculty member in the Division of Rheumatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in September 2012.

Dr. Pagnoux founded in November 2010 CanVasc, the Canadian network for research on vasculitides, whose main objectives are to help conduct studies in the area of vasculitis, provide support and educational materials for physicians and trainees across Canada, and optimize patient care. He has written more than 150 peer-reviewed publications and several textbook chapters on vasculitis.
