Mario Lamontagne, PhD

Vice Dean of Research

University of Ottawa and The Ottawa Hospital Research Associates


Mario Lamontagne received his PhD in biomedical engineering from the École Polytechnique at the University of Montreal. He is currently a professor in biomechanics at the School of Human Kinetics of the University of Ottawa, with a cross-appointment to the Department of Mechanical Engineering. Dr. Lamontagne’s research focuses on biomedical sciences and biomechanics, particularly on numerical and musculoskeletal modelling of human joints, design and adaptive technology of prosthetics and orthotics, injury prevention and neuromuscular adaptation. His major research programs focus on the mechanics of the human healthy and pathological hip and knee joint, as well as on the biomechanical assessment of the mobility of patients who have undergone a total hip and knee arthroplasty. His research interests include biomedical sciences, biomechanics, numerical and musculoskeletal modeling, injury prevention, assisted technology design (prosthetics and orthotics), and neuromuscular adaptation. His current research program funded by NSERC is to develop a numerical and musculoskeletal model of the hip joint for patients suffering from the femoroacetabular deformity.
