Michel Chrétien, physician, researcher, professor (b at Shawinigan, Qué 26 Mar 1936), brother of Jean Chrétien.

In 1967 he was the first to propose that pituitary hormones were synthesized from larger precursors. Since then, he has concentrated his research efforts on this hypothesis, which he has proved to be of general application. His work has won him several awards, including an honorary PhD from U of Liège (Belgium). Chrétien has spent all his professional career with the Clinical Research Institute of Montréal, of which he has been the scientific director since 1984. He is a member of numerous scientific societies and a strong advocate for increased basic medical research in Canada.
