Sébastien Lobet, PT, PhD, is a physiotherapist and researcher at the Haemostasis and Thrombosis Unit at the Cliniques Universitaires Saint-Luc in Brussels, Belgium. Dr Lobet has a Masters in Sport Physiotherapy (1999) from the Catholic University of Louvain and a degree in Pediatric Orthopedic Physiotherapy (2009) from the Université Libre de Bruxelles. Presently, his main research interests lie in the area of musculoskeletal assessment in children and adults with haemophilia. In 2012, he completed his PhD thesis at the Institute of Neurosciences, Catholic University of Louvain. His research focuses on the functional assessment of haemophilic arthropathy by three-dimensional gait analysis.
In 2009, Dr Lobet received the Henri Horoszowski Memorial Award (2009) at the 11th International Musculoskeletal Congress of the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH). He has also received a number of prestigious industry-sponsored research grants and awards including the “Heroes in Hemophilia” Award (2010) and an Early Career Investigator Award (2012) to complete a post-doctoral fellowship at the KULeuven University on functional assessment of ankle arthropathy in children with haemophilia. Most recently in 2014, Dr Lobet was awarded a WFH Clinical Research Grant with Dr Kevin Deschamps (KULeuven) for the research project “Quantifying foot biomechanics in haemophilic children with ankle arthropathy through an integrated approach”.
