Cohort 2018

Brief Bio:

Dr. Peter Papageorgiou was born in Toronto, but it’s only been a few years since he became familiar with the city again. He has lived and studied in Greece and the United Kingdom, only to move back to Toronto to pursue his love of science; where he discovered a molecule that plays a key role in hypertension that established a physiological connection between the coagulation and sympatho-adrenal systems. Choosing to pursue the project further, focusing on translational research, he applied his in vitro work to animals, and subsequently to a human trial; orchestrating collaborations from cardiology, hematology, nephrology and physiology.
