Benoit Pineau was born in Montreal, Canada in 1965 to French-Canadian parents. He graduated from the University of Ottawa Faculty of Medicine in 1985. This was followed by a one-year rotating internship at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, before returning to Ottawa for internal medicine and gastroenterology training.

In 1995, Professor Pineau obtained an ASGE Olympus Scholarship that allowed him to pursue fellowship training in advanced endoscopy at the Medical University of South Carolina with Peter Cotton. The following year, he was appointed Assistant Professor of Medicine and Gastroenterology at the Wake Forest University School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Professor Pineau is currently an NCI cancer prevention fellow completing a Masters in Clinical Epidemiology. His thesis is on the accuracy of virtual colonoscopy, work that has been made possible by his professional association with the father of virtual colonoscopy, Dr. David Vining. His research interests are in gastrointestinal cancer prevention, including the primary and secondary prevention of colorectal cancer.

He has served the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy as past chairman of the diversity committee and as a current member of the research committee.

What made you decide to become a gastroenterologist?
My combined love of internal medicine and general surgery with a predominance for the former.
Who was the teacher you admired the most?
Peter Cotton. He is an exceptional physician, teacher, and true academician. He continues to be a great role model.
Which research paper influenced you the most?
The national polyp study published by Winawer et al. (N Engl J Med 1993; 329 (27): 1977-81). This study clearly demonstrates the efficacy of colonoscopy in colorectal cancer screening.
What is the most important fact that you have discovered?
Endoscopy will keep you humble.
What is the biggest mistake that you have made?
To not vote.
How do you relax?
By spending time at home with my wife Bonnie, daughter Sophie, and my three crazy Jack Russell Terriers, Buddy, Dixie, and Willie.
What is your favorite sport?
Golf, when I get a chance to play.
What is your best place in the world?
Home.
What is your favorite film?
"Life is Beautiful".
What car do you drive?
1991 Honda Accord with a lot of miles.
What is your best electronic 'toy'?
This is a toss-up between my Palm Vx and my recently installed high-speed cable internet access with router and firewall.
What book are you reading at the moment?
"Thesis for Dummies" (I'm still looking for it).
