Biographie

Après deux stages postdoctoraux, l’un en psychologie du développement à la Wayne State University (Détroit) et l’autre en santé environnementale au Centre de recherche du CHUQ, madame Muckle occupe un poste de professeure sous octroi au Département de médecine sociale et préventive de l’Université Laval pendant cinq ans avant d’être engagée à ce même titre à l’École de psychologie et d’y devenir en 2005 professeure régulière. Son domaine de spécialisation, la tératologie développementale et comportementale, intègre des concepts issus de l’épidémiologie et de la toxicologie et touche la santé des enfants et l’environnement. Les substances tératogènes auxquelles s’intéresse particulièrement madame Muckle sont l’alcool et les substances chimiques, comme les organochlorés, les pesticides, le mercure et le plomb, qui ont des effets sur le développement par contamination de la chaîne alimentaire. Elle s’intéresse également aux déterminants de la santé des Inuits. Madame Muckle a obtenu des subventions de recherche des IRSC, du FRSQ, du NIH, du ministère canadien des Affaires indiennes et du Nord et de Santé Canada. Elle a été membre du Comité aviseur de l’Institut du développement et de la santé des enfants et des adolescents des IRSC et du Groupe consultatif du défi visant à conseiller le gouvernement canadien relativement aux risques à la santé de substances chimiques visées par le Plan de gestion des produits chimiques. Madame Muckle est vice-doyenne aux études à la Faculté des sciences sociales depuis janvier 2016.
