The Jules-Brodeur research prize is awarded biennially to a graduate student who has distinguished him/herself by the quality of his/her research and participation in departmental life.
During his time at the University of Montreal, Dr. Sauve worked on characterizing exposure to silica in construction workers and developed a job-exposure matrix for the Canadian population (known as ‘CANJEM’) which includes 258 agents and over 30,000 job categories. He also explored the use creatinine in normalizing urine concentrations, occupational risk factors for prostate cancer, and surrogate measures of diesel engine exhaust exposure.
