Mohammad Qadura




Dr. Mohammad Qadura is a Staff Surgeon in the Division of Vascular Surgery at St. Michael’s Hospital, a Scientist at the Keenan Research Centre for Biomedical Science of St. Michael’s Hospital, and an Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto. Dr. Qadura earned his doctorate in Pathology and Molecular Medicine at Queen’s University.

His interest in personalized medicine has led him to discover novel biomarkers for peripheral arterial disease. Specifically, Dr. Qadura’s research team has conducted in-depth studies to identify miRNA, proteins and metabolites that are strongly associated with peripheral arterial disease. Additionally, Dr. Qadura’s lab also investigates the personalization of anti-platelet and anti-coagulation therapy in patients with atherosclerotic vascular disease.

 Currently accepting graduate students.
