Dr. Goligher is an Assistant Professor in the Interdepartmental Division of Critical Care Medicine at the University of Toronto and a Clinician Scientist at the University Health Network. After studying biochemistry and medicine at the University of British Columbia, he training in internal medicine and critical care medicine at the University of Toronto. He subsequently earned a doctoral degree in physiology from the University of Toronto, focusing on mechanisms of diaphragmatic dysfunction during mechanical ventilation. His research program is focused on characterizing the mechanisms and impact of injury in the lung and diaphragm during mechanical ventilation, and on employing innovative clinical trial designs to test lung and diaphragm-protective ventilation strategies.
Acute respiratory failure, acute respiratory distress syndrome, mechanical ventilation, respiratory physiology and clinical epidemiology.
