Profile: Clinical Scholar, The Ottawa Hospital
Department: Anesthesiology, University of Ottawa
My current research is largely preclinical and translational, focusing on stem cell therapy for systemic inflammation that is induced by perioperative and critical illness (e.g. myocardial ischemia reperfusion injury, sepsis). I also have an interest in reducing risk of bias in preclinical work and improving translation of preclinical work to the clinical domain. We are using knowledge synthesis methods (e.g. systematic reviews) in order to improve translation of bench discoveries to first-in-human and early clinical trials.
