MD, PhD, FRCPC (AP & FP)
Assistant Professor

My research interests centre upon the “investigation of deaths resulting from unintended complications of devices and materials used in healthcare and the community setting”. It is my hope that identifying, understanding, and publishing on these types of unnecessary deaths will help reduce their future occurrence.

MD, PhD, DSc
Professor Emeritus / Emerita
Research Location: The Hospital for Sick Children/Research Institute
Primary Research Area: Cardiovascular
Secondary Research Area: Molecular & Cell Biology

My research evolved around genetic diseases of connective tissues and pathology of extracellular matrix.  I have pioneered bioengineering of human articular and ear cartilages and addressed pathomorphology and therapy of cardiac and vascular diseases. I also aim at induction of new elastic fibers formation and aleviation of collagenous fibroses.

Secondary Research Area: Molecular & Cell Biology

Dr. Jim Hu's major research goal is to develop novel gene delivery strategies in order to translate the genetic discoveries into clinical applications. His team developed novel viral vectors that can protect CF mice from acute lung bacterial infection and established methods for efficient airway gene delivery to large animals. His current endeavour is to achieve permanent airway gene correction by targeting the airway stem cells.
