Qubec, August 12, 2009 On August 19, Dr. Michel G. Bergeron, director of the Centre de recherche en infectiologie (CRI) of Laval University, will receive the 2009 Canadian Medical Association's (CMA) Medal of Service. This medal is being presented in recognition of Dr. Bergeron's outstanding contribution to the medical profession, medical and research organizations, the Canadian health care system, and the well-being of patients around the world.

The CMA Medal of Service is awarded to an individual who has made an exceptional and outstanding contribution to the advancement of health care in Canada. Dr. Bergeron is an internationally renowned clinical researcher and specialist in infectious diseases.

"Thanks to Dr. Bergeron's remarkable work, thousands of patients have benefited from an improved quality of life. He has contributed concretely to the prevention and diagnosis of infectious diseases. Dr. Bergeron's accomplishments deserve our admiration," says CMA President Dr. Robert Ouellet.

"I wasn't expecting such an honour. I'm very proud, and I must thank all those who have always believed in me and supported me in my personal life, medical practice and research," says Dr. Bergeron.

After obtaining his medical degree at Laval University in 1968, Michel Bergeron completed his residency in internal medicine at McGill and went on to a research fellowship in infectious diseases at the New England Medical Centre Hospital, Tufts University in Boston. He then returned to his hometown of Qubec City. In 1974, he was appointed assistant professor of microbiology at Laval. That same year, he founded the university's laboratory in infectious diseases research, later named Centre de recherche en infectiologie (CRI), which today ranks as the largest infectious disease research centre in Canada. Dr. Bergeron teaches at Laval University and internationally as a visiting professor.
