Michael G. Fehlings, MD, PhD, FRCSC, FACS

The Fehlings Lab is a world leader in the field of translational research dedicated to neural repair and regeneration. Dr. Fehlings and his team have published over 900 peer-reviewed articles on topics such as traumatic spinal cord injury, degenerative cervical myelopathy, spine oncology, cerebral palsy and therapeutic treatments to repair and regenerate the injured central nervous system.

Today, the Fehlings lab is located at the Krembil Research Institute, which is part of the University Health Network (Toronto Western Hospital) and is fully affiliated with the University of Toronto. The dedicated team of researchers, clinicians and support staff work out of state-of-the-art facilities located within the Krembil Discovery Tower as well as the Honey and Barry Sherman Spinal Cord Injury Clinical Research Unit. The unique pairing of both basic and clinical researchers at one site is the ideal scenario to facilitate high impact translational research.
