Assistant Professor at University of Toronto/Krembil Research Institute/University Health Network

Location: Toronto ON Canada

Dr. Suneil Kalia, MD, PhD, FAANS, FRCS(C) is a scientist at the Krembil Research Institute and assistant professor in neurosurgery at the University of Toronto. His research laboratory focuses on understanding molecular mechanisms of protein homeostasis (balance) in neurodegeneration and establishing model systems to study protein function in Parkinson's disease (PD). As a neurosurgeon, his clinical focus is on the surgical management of movement disorders, particularly PD. Dr. Kalia received his BSc at McGill University and his MD and PhD from the University of Toronto. In 2006, he entered the neurosurgery residency program at University of Toronto, during which he completed a post-doctoral research fellowship at the Massachusetts General Hospital Institute for Neurodegenerative Disease at Harvard University. After obtaining his FRCS(C) in neurosurgery, Dr. Kalia underwent sub-specialty training in functional neurosurgery at the Toronto Western Hospital. His team is actively working to develop novel biological therapies that are designed to slow or halt the progression of neurodegeneration in PD.
