Dr. Rola Saleeb

Physician, University of Toronto, Toronto


I am an Anatomical Pathology post graduate trainee at University of Toronto. My main area of research interest is Genitourinary Pathology and Kidney cancer. I took the OICR transformative Pathology Fellowship in 2015, which was a tremendous opportunity for me to pursue the field of molecular Pathology research. I completed my PhD studies in the Laboratory medicine and Pathobiology at U of T, as part of the Clinician investigator/ clinician scientist trainee program. My research work continues under the support of the OMPRN grant.
