Dr. Lisa Topolnik is researcher at the Centre de recherche du CHU de Québec and professor at the Department of biochemistry, microbiology and bio-informatics of the Faculty of Science and Engineering of the Université Laval. She began her academic career at the Université Laval in 2007 as assistant professor, while being affiliated with the Robert-Giffard research center.

Her recruitment was realized within the framework of the strategic project in biophotonics and the creation of the Center of neurophotonics. By combining her talents in research with advanced expertise in optophysiological and optogenetic technologies, Dr. Topolnik was one of the first researchers to fill a niche in neurophotonics at the Université Laval. She played a major role in the development of the multidisciplinary research at Université Laval, in particular as professor of the international school Frontiers in Neurophotonics. Dr. Topolnik is a recipient of the University Faculty Award for Women in science and engineering from the Natural Science and Engineering Council of Canada (NSERC) and a “Professor-Star Award” from the Faculty of Science and Engineering of Université Laval.
