About Me

Dr. Adam is an Anatomical Pathologist at the University of Alberta Hospital and Assistant Professor in the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology. He completed medical school and residency training in Anatomical Pathology at the University of Alberta, followed by subspecialty training in Renal Pathology at Harvard Medical School/Massachusetts General Hospital, Thoracic Pathology at Toronto General Hospital, and Transplantation Pathology at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. His research is focused on molecular transplantation pathology, including the use of cutting-edge gene expression technologies to diagnose and assess allograft rejection, infection, and ex vivo perfusion-related injury and repair. The ultimate goal of this research is to develop more precise diagnostic tools that will facilitate the delivery of personalized medicine. He has authored over 20 peer-reviewed journal articles and traveled throughout the world to present and lecture on the topics of his research. In 2015, he received the American Transplant Congress Young Investigator Award for his work.
