Karine Souffez, M.Sc.

I have been working in the field of knowledge transfer since 2004. I first served as knowledge broker at the Léa-Roback Centre on social inequalities in health, then assumed coordination of the Sharing and Use of Knowledge focus at the Réseau de recherche en santé des populations du Québec (RRSQP). I am currently working at the Institut national de santé publique du Québec (INSPQ) as expert in the field of knowledge transfer. Since 2008 I have held a master’s degree in political science from the Université de Montréal. My thesis, for which I received a prize from the Fondation Jean-Charles-Bonenfant of the National Assembly, was on the role of research in the development of Québec anti-poverty policy. Before beginning my involvement with public health, I served as political attaché in the Research Service of the office of Prime Minister Bernard Landry and political advisor to the Research Service of the Official Opposition in Québec City.
