Dr. Evelyne Vinet is a rheumatologist with a PhD in epidemiology. She is currently an Assistant professor of Medicine at McGill University (Montreal, Canada). Her research interest focuses on reproductive issues in women with rheumatic diseases. Dr Vinet has created the world’s largest cohort of children born to women with SLE, the “Offspring of SLE mothers Registry (OSLER)”. With this unique resource, she and her team, have demonstrated that SLE offspring have an increased risk of certain adverse health outcomes (autism, congenital heart defects) compared to children from the general population. Dr Vinet published her results in Arthritis & Rheumatology and Circulation, both high-ranking journals in the field.
Both in 2013 and 2015, Dr. Vinet was awarded the Canadian Rheumatology Association Young Faculty Award for Excellence in Research. At the 2013 International Congress on SLE in Buenos Aires, she was awarded the Pan-American League Against Rheumatism Award for a young investigator. More recently, in 2017, she was awarded a Canadian Institutes of Health Research Catalyst grant to create the Lupus prEGnAnCY (LEGACY) cohort, an international multi-centre prospective cohort of unselected SLE pregnancies. Dr Vinet already has to her credit 38 peer-reviewed publications, including several first-author original research articles and has also presented her work by invitation in oral and poster forms at numerous national and international scientific meetings.
