Our faculty

With over 350 faculty members, LMP is uniquely positioned to offer a diverse array of research and clinical training opportunities.

Our faculty members are involved in a broad spectrum of research and clinical practice leading to a fertile atmosphere for innovative interactions.

Our members range from full-time basic scientists involved in discovery and mechanistic research to pathologists, laboratory physicians, and scientists involved in the clinical practice of pathology and laboratory medicine. 

Whether investigating why a heart valve is malfunctioning, why obesity contributes to insulin resistance, or how a tumour can be thwarted by oxygen deprivation, our faculty members work at the leading-edge of research and clinical practice. 

This relentless drive for action and pursuit of excellence is characteristic of LMP. Our proven success in mentoring future generations of researchers and clinicians is essential for advancing health care in Canada and around the world.
