Dr. Tanis Dingle is currently appointed as Assistant Professor in the Department of Laboratory Medicine & Pathology in the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry. In addition, Dr. Dingle is a clinical microbiologist at the Provincial Laboratory for Public Health. Dr. Dingle is currently the Director of the Clinical Microbiology Fellowship Program offered through the Department of Laboratory Medicine & Pathology at the University of Alberta.
Dr. Dingle completed her Ph.D at the University of Calgary in the Department of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases and completed her clinical microbiology training at the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington. Dr. Dingle is certified as a diplomate of the American Board of Medical Microbiology and is a Fellow of the Canadian College of Microbiologists.
My research interests include exploring novel strategies for assessing antimicrobial activity and detecting antimicrobial resistance in the clinical microbiology laboratory. Additionally, the development of diagnostic methods and algorithms to understand the epidemiology and improve the prognosis of patients with invasive fungal infections is an active area of research interest.
