Dr. Christine Orr

Pathology Resident, Queen's University, Kingston


I am an anatomical pathology resident at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario. I have had the fortune of being involved in research regarding gastrointestinal and head & neck pathology during my training. Currently, I am investigating the molecular pathways affected by metformin in diabetic colorectal cancer patients and working to further describe gastric polyposis in relation to familial syndromes; particularly regarding GAPPS.
