He is the Scientific Director of the Montreal Centre for Experimental Therapeutics in Cancer and the Director of the McGill Centre for Translational Research in Cancer, which were established to stimulate rapid translation of new discoveries in the research laboratory into clinical benefits for patients. In his capacity as Chair of the Department of Oncology, he has nurtured the development of a number of multidisciplinary programs that have been highly innovative and amongst the first of their kind in Canada. Dr. Batist is a member of scholarly associations, serves on editorial boards and on advisory committees.
