Dr Hébert completed his PT training and obtained a Master degree in biomedical sciences at the Montreal University, and a PhD in Experimental Medicine at l’Université Laval. His research work focuses on the explicative and predictive variables of neuro-musculo-skelettal conditions and the risk factors limiting physical performance with a strong interest for muscle function.
