Dwight and Vera Dunlevie Professor in Pediatric Cardiology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our research program seeks to identify the cellular and molecular programs regulating vascular and lung development, through the use of cultured cells and tissues and mouse and rat models. We then determine how these programs are perturbed by genetic abnormalities or injurious processes associated with disease, focusing on pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), a fatal complication in children with heart defects, and a condition of unknown etiology primarily in young women.
Professor of Medicine, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr Rabkin is examining the mechanism of the acquired resistance to hormones that develops in kidney failure.In particular he is studying the impact of kidney failure on the action of growth hormone and the role of impaired signal transduction as a cause of growth hormone resistance. He is also engaged in the study of growth factors in diabetic kidney disease.
Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine
Bio As a child of age 8, I was introduced to science at the local university washing glassware in my father’s immunology laboratory. I have spent a lifetime refining and building on those early life experiences.
As a next generation expert in immunology, bridging my father’s interest in laboratory research, my passion is in merging clinical care with scientific patterns. Having seen over 10,000 patients, I have tried to use clinical pattern recognition to bridge current concepts in the scientific literature with goals to provide advances to, and the best clinical care possible. These efforts have led to collaborations both far and near, including as expert panel member in allergy/immunology reviewing Canada’s National Centres of Excellence in Research strategic planning goals, an invited editorial for the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, a book chapter on allergen immunotherapy, reviewer for leading journals to help shape the flow of ideas moving science forward, and as editor-in-chief for the Journal of Respiratory Disorders.
