Dr. Corinne Hoesli is an Assistant Professor in Chemical Engineering at McGill University, Montréal, Québec, Canada. She is a biochemical engineer with expertise in bioprocess development, high‑throughput screening and stem cell culture optimization. She obtained undergraduate degrees in Biochemistry and Chemical Engineering in 2003 at the University of Ottawa. She then moved to Vancouver to complete a Ph.D. in Chemical and Biological engineering at the University of British Columbia in the laboratory of Dr. James Piret. Her doctoral work focused on the development of novel cell encapsulation and culture methods for diabetes cellular therapy. She next pursued postdoctoral training in the bioengineering laboratories of Dr. Alain Garnier and Dr. Gaétan Laroche, where she designed a live cell imaging system to study the effect of biomimetic molecules on vascular regeneration. She became the head of the Stem Cell Bioprocessing Laboratory at McGill in August 2014. She has received numerous awards recognizing her leadership in cell culture engineering, including the Martin Sinacore Outstanding Young Investigator Award conferred by Engineering Conferences International and Biogen Idec.
