Brief Bio:

I am a specialist in Internal Medicine and Pulmonary Medicine and received my training in Finland. My research interests are focused on lung transplantation immunology that was also the topic of my Ph.D. thesis. I currently work in the Toronto Lung Transplant Program where I am doing both clinical lung transplantation and research.

Capstone Project:

Improved efficacy of research and education in the laboratory

Latner Thoracic Surgery Research Laboratories (LL) is one of the most successful research programs worldwide in lung cancer and lung transplant research. LL publishes one peer-reviewed publication every two weeks. On the translational front, this program has developed ground-breaking clinical applications of which Ex-vivo Lung Perfusion (EVLP) is a good example. EVLP is a revolutionary technique to assess and treat donor lungs and has been translated into clinical use in Canada and is now pending regulatory approval for use in the U.S.
