Dr. Paré joined the Atlantic Cancer Research Institute in 2015 after being bestowed the New Brunswick Innovation Research Chair in Medical Technologies (funded by the New Brunswick Innovation Foundation – NBIF). After completing his B.Sc. from McGill University (1980) and his Ph.D. from Carleton University (1984), Dr. Paré began his career as a Visiting Fellow in Canadian Government Laboratories with Agriculture Canada (1984-85) then as Section Head and Assistant Director of the St. Hyacinthe Food Research centre (1985-89). His then moved on to Environment Canada (EC) in Ottawa where his research interests were in analytical and organic chemistry as well as sample preparation; in the applications of microwave as energy efficient technologies; and in the development of unconventional energy processes. He is the main inventor of the Microwave-Assisted Processes (MAPTM) family of technologies. During his tenure at EC, Dr. Paré cumulated at various times the positions of Section Head, Division Chief, Research Centre Director as well as Director General for the Environmental Technology Advancement Directorate. He remained however active as research scientist and pursued aggressively R&D projects throughout all of his time within EC.

After his early retirement from EC in 2010, Dr. Paré continued providing expert advices and services to the industrial sector. He also provided support to the Court in litigation cases involving potential or real infringement of certain Intellectual Property rights. He also pursued the development and advancement of microwave-assisted technologies in various fields of work. He has expertise in various aspects of the MAP technology and the level of such experience varies from case to case and range from conceptual analysis of solutions to microwave-assisted processing to the actual design and supervision of the construction of industrial capacity equipment. He dedicated special attention to the use of such techniques in
the medical sector.

Within his mandate with the applied research Chair Dr. Paré will be devoting his time to innovations in the use of electromagnetic radiation as energy source in the detection and treatment of medical ailments with a major focus on cancer. The use of electromagnetic radiation as energy source is a core disruptive technology that lends itself to basically all areas of commercial development today. In fact, it is hoped that with the unique expertise of the recipient, the Chair will offer New Brunswick a means to take world leadership in areas of strategic importance to the province.

While a major portion of the research time of the Chair will focus on Biosciences, a portion of that time will be dedicated to knowledge transfer and spent in vigorously pursuing the establishment of collaborative research and innovation ties in other NBIF strategic sectors, namely those of Information & Communication Technology, Energy & Environment, Energy Efficiency, as well as in Value-Added Food and Value-Added Wood.

Dr. Paré has authored/co-authored over 175 scientific publications, holds 13 patents, and has presented his scientific work around the world in about 450 communications. Dr. Paré, was recognized with various awards such as: the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) Award (Canadian National Committee) – most promising young chemist (1990), the 1999 Green Technology Award; the Treasury Board of Canada Award of Excellence in 2000; the 5 Natural Resources Science Award in 2001; the Innovator Award of the Federal Partners in Technology Transfer (FPTT) in 2001; the 2001 United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response Science & Technical Achievement Award; Environment Canada's Departmental Citation of Excellence Award (2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, and 2005); the 2002 Head of the Public Service Award; the Government of Canada Outstanding Achievement Award in 2003; the 2003 Gold Medal of the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada; and the Maxxam Award in Analytical Chemistry of the Chemical Society of Canada in 2004. He also was bestowed a Meritorious Service Medal (MSM) in 2003 from Canada's Honours system, he was inducted in the Carleton University Wall of Fame in 2004, and the Professional Institute of the public Service of Canada named a Scholarship in his honour (the Paré Scholarship in Technologies Studies sponsored by Xerox) in 2004.

His various affiliations over the years were: Adjunct Professor at McGill University, Laval University, and the Universidad Central de Venezuela; Invited Professor at the Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas (CNIC) de Cuba; Research Associate with the Université de Moncton; Visiting Professor at Nankai University, China; Honorary Professor at Kunming University, China; Vice-President of the National Advisory Committee (Sciences) of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (Société Radio-Canada); and Fellow of the Chemical Institute of Canada. He is still actively pursuing the development of new collaborations within the Canadian network of universities.
