Division of Advanced Diagnostics

The aim of research in this division is precision phenotyping of human disease, forming the bedrock on which ‘personalized medicine’ will be built. Activities in this division will include investigations at the gene, protein, cell, organ and integrative physiology levels—all working to establish the pathophysiology (i.e. operational mechanisms) and natural history (i.e. temporal staging) of human disease.

While cell and animal-based model systems may be needed to develop techniques and hypotheses for these activities, the ultimate goal of every investigator in this division should be to test their approaches and hypotheses in patient-oriented research. To realize this goal, this work will integrate with the research priorities of every clinical program at TGH, including Medical Imaging and Laboratory Medicine.

Division Head: Myron Cybulsky.
