Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre is pleased to announce the appointment
of Dr. Bradley Strauss (pictured) as the new chief of the Schulich Heart
Dr. Strauss is head of the division of cardiology at Sunnybrook and
holds the Reichmann Chair in Cardiovascular Sciences. He is a professor
at the University of Toronto, a senior scientist at the Sunnybrook
Research Institute and serves also as the director of the Imaging
Research Centre for Cardiac Intervention.
Dr. Strauss is an outstanding and internationally renowned researcher.
His research at the Schulich Heart Centre is focused on developing new
ways to diagnose and treat blockages in the coronary arteries (chronic
total occlusions) in order to prevent heart attacks and heart failure
and restore quality of life to patients with this condition.
The Canadian Institutes of Health Research, Heart and Stroke Foundation
and other agencies fund Dr. Strauss’s work.
He has published over 400 research papers and presentations, been
granted multiple patents and shaped a generation of investigators who
will continue to evolve the understanding of why blockages in blood
vessels happen and how to get them working again.
Dr. Strauss replaces Dr. Brian Gilbert, who stepped down in June after
15 years of exceptional leadership as chief.
