Isabelle Aubert

Updated: Jan 12, 2023

With a full heart I welcome my dear friend Isabelle Aubert to my Board of Directors.


Dr. Isabelle Aubert, Senior Scientist in Biological Sciences at Sunnybrook Research Institute (SRI) and Professor in the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology (LMP) at the University of Toronto (U of T), has been recognized with a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Brain Repair and Regeneration. Tier 1 CRCs are awarded to world leaders in their field for a seven-year term, renewable once.

The Canada Research Chair Program, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, recently released its latest appointees to Canada’s highest research honour.

Dr. Aubert’s preclinical discoveries have been foundational in shaping an emerging field of research: the neurobiology of focused ultrasound. This work supported the rapid translation to the clinic, including the first clinical trials for blood-brain barrier modulation by focused ultrasound in patients with Alzheimer’s disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) at Sunnybrook.
