Dr. Brad Doble is an associate professor of pediatrics and child health, and biochemistry and medical genetics. He holds the Bihler Chair in Stem Cell Research.
Dr. Doble received his PhD at the University of Manitoba, in the Department of Physiology under the guidance of Dr. Elissavet Kardami, with a thesis focused on cardiovascular cell biology and the role of gap junctions in cardiac cell homeostasis.
Dr. Doble’s postdoctoral studies were conducted at the Ontario Cancer Institute/Princess Margaret Hospital (Toronto) in Dr. Jim Woodgett’s lab. There, Dr. Doble gained expertise in the genetic manipulation of mouse embryonic stem cells and the development of novel mouse models targeting the kinases GSK-3ɑ and GSK-3β, which are involved in myriad cellular processes and are implicated in numerous human diseases including cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, and type II diabetes.
After 13 years as a principal investigator at McMaster, Dr. Doble returned to the University of Manitoba in July of 2019.
