Dr Melanie Morin graduated in physiotherapy in 2001 at the University of Montreal and is currently an associate professor at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences of the University of Sherbrooke. She is also a researcher at the Research Centre of the CHUS specializing in pelvic floor dysfunctions and is the founder and director of its Urogynecology research laboratory. She completed her M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees focusing on the role of the pelvic floor muscles (PFM) in the pathophysiology of postpartum and postmenopausal urinary incontinence. During her post-doctorate, she specialized in gynecological pain conditions and sexual dysfunctions. She completed several multidisciplinary randomized control trials (RCTs) studying namely the effectiveness of different treatments (physiotherapy, lidocaine, transcranial stimulation) for vulvodynia, incontinence and avulsion-related symptoms. Her research and clinical interests are diversified including pathophysiology and treatment of pelvic floor disorders (pelvic pain, incontinence, avulsion, sexual dysfunction), pelvic floor assessment (using palpation, dynamometry, electromyography and ultrasonography), pain physiology and instrument development.
Dr Morin published numerous scientific manuscripts and book chapters on pelvic floor disorders; their multiple citations attest to their relevance for other researchers. Her diversified expertise has led her to be frequently invited as an expert and guest speaker at conferences including ICS/IUGA workshops. She has been an active member of the ICS since 2003 and is an appointed member of the ICS physiotherapy committee as well as the ICS scientific committee. She is experienced in systematic reviews and clinical guidelines including her recent involvement in the International Consultation on Incontinence. She is also involved in standardization working groups of ICS/IUGA on the terminology for pelvic floor muscle function & dysfunction as well as the terminology for sexual health in women with pelvic floor dysfunctions.

Dr Melanie Morin declared on the Monday 8th January 2024 that they did not have any existing or known future financial relationships or affiliations to disclose (NONE).
