Location: School of Medicine Room 132 OR via Zoom

Dr. Paul Kubes

Professor, Snyder Institute for Chronic Diseases
Department of Physiology and Pharmacology
University of Calgary

Imaging Immune Cells in Infections and Chronic Diseases

Dr. Kubes received his PhD degree at Queen’s University Canada in cardiovascular physiology followed by a postdoctoral fellowship in ischemia/reperfusion injury in Louisiana State University, where some of the early imaging was being done. Dr. Kubes was then recruited to University of Calgary in 1991 as Assistant Professor and started to image the innate immune system focusing on neutrophils. Since then, Dr. Kubes has developed novel imaging techniques to study immune cells in the lungs, liver, heart, and most other organs. He has been a Tier I Canada Research Chair and holds the Snyder Chair in Critical Care Medicine. He is the founding director of the Snyder Institute for Chronic Diseases with more than 100 basic and clinical faculty. He has led three successful Canadian Foundation Innovation Fund awards that have built an Imaging Centre, the International Microbiome Centre, and last year a new $10M CFI to build a wild microbiome facility at the vet campus. Dr. Kubes has published in Science, Nature, and Cell consistently, was Canada’s Researcher of the year in 2011. He is most proud of the more than 100 trainees, 40 of whom are faculty across the world.
