As an implementation scientist, Dr. Guillaume Fontaine works across disciplines and settings to understand how best to implement evidence-based interventions in routine practice to solve challenges within the healthcare system. His past studies have focused on chronic noncommunicable diseases, problematic substance use and HIV.

He is currently a CIHR Banting Postdoctoral Fellow (2021–2023) at the Centre for Implementation Research in the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute and the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Ottawa. His postdoctoral research program seeks to understand how approaches from implementation science can be used to increase the quality and coverage of hepatitis C prevention, screening and treatment services in needle syringe programs for people who inject drugs. 

He was previously a CIHR Frederick Banting and Charles Best CGS-M Scholar (2015–2016) and a CIHR Vanier Scholar (2018–2021) at the Montreal Heart Institute Research Centre and the University of Montreal. He holds a Bachelor of Science, Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing from the University of Montreal.
