Biographie

Après un stage postdoctoral au Fox Chase Cancer Center (Philadelphie), madame Savard intègre l’École de psychologie en 1997 à titre de chercheuse-boursière du FRQ-S et entreprend ses travaux de recherche au Centre de recherche sur le cancer à L’Hôtel-Dieu de Québec (CHU de Québec-Université Laval). En 1999, elle obtient le statut de professeure subventionnelle et, en 2000, elle est nommée professeure adjointe et reçoit une prestigieuse bourse du Conseil de recherche médicale du Canada. Elle est professeure titulaire depuis 2008. Ses divers projets de recherche, subventionnés par les IRSC et l’Alliance canadienne pour la recherche sur le cancer du sein, sont centrés principalement sur les aspects psychologiques du cancer et sur l’efficacité des interventions cognitivo-comportementales pour améliorer la qualité de vie des personnes atteintes de cette maladie. De plus, elle s’intéresse à la relation entre certains facteurs psychologiques et physiologiques liés au cancer. Plus particulièrement, ses travaux portent sur l’insomnie et la dépression dans le contexte du cancer du sein et du cancer de la prostate. En 2000, madame Savard a obtenu le prix du Jeune Chercheur de la Société canadienne de psychologie/Canadian Psychological Association (SCP/CPA) et le Early Career Award de l’International Congress of Behavioral Medicine. En 2014, le prix d’excellence en éducation de l’Association canadienne en oncologie psychosociale (ACOP) lui a été décerné. Puis, en 2015, elle a reçu une nomination au titre de fellow de à la Société canadienne de psychologie.
