The JCCA is delighted to announce the appointment of Dr. Mathieu Piche, DC, PhD to the Editorial Board.

Dr. Piche graduated in 2002 from the chiropractic doctoral program at Universite du Quebec a Trois-Rivieres (UQTR). He obtained a Masters degree in Cell Biology and Biophysics from UQTR in 2004 for his work on neural plasticity of sensory systems in rodents. In July 2009, he obtained his PhD in Neurological Sciences from Universite de Montreal for his work on endogenous modulation of pain in humans. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chiropractic at UQTR where he teaches neurophysiology. He is a co-researcher for the chiropractic research chair at UQTR and for CIHR funded projects on pain neurophysiology at Universite de Montreal. His research interests include the physiology and pathology of endogenous pain modulation and the impact of spinal pain on autonomic regulation in humans and rodents.

In 2005, Dr. Piche was awarded a prestigious CIHR Fellowship from the Clinical Research Initiative in the Institute of Gender and Health. One of only six recipients, this 4 year award allowed Dr. Piche to undertake his research on the neurophysiological mechanisms of chronic pain with Dr. Pierre Rainville PhD and Dr. Mickael Bouin MD, PhD at Universite de Montreal.

His current publications include:
