Biography

Dr. Anish Kirpalani is a staff radiologist at St. Michael’s Hospital. He is the Director of the St. Michael’s MRI Research Centre, and is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Medical Imaging at the University of Toronto.

He is the author of numerous peer-reviewed journal articles and has given numerous invited lectures nationally and internationally, in the fields of abdominal and cardiovascular MRI.

His research interests at the Canada Foundation for Innovation-funded St. Michael’s MRI Research Centre are in validation of MRI tools as quantitative outcome measures in high-impact abdominal and cardiovascular clinical problems. He is the imaging lead for a Canadian Institutes of Health Research and Physicians’ Services Incorporated-funded research program in kidney fibrosis MRI.
