Dr. Shane Shapera – Supporting the First Generation of ILD Trained Clinicians in Canada

Tune in as Dr. Shane Shapera shares how CPFF Robert Davidson Fellowships have played a critical role in starting up University Health Network’s (UHN’s) ILD research program, supporting the first generation of Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD)-trained clinicians in Canada.

As a direct result of CPFF Robert Davidson Fellowships, academic respirologists will continue ILD research for decades to come, resulting in an increase in the accessibility to ILD expertise across Ontario and beyond.

Dr. Shapera is an Associate Professor and Clinician Educator in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto. He is also the Director of the Interstitial Lung Diseases Program at the Toronto General Hospital and works with the Toronto Lung Transplant Program providing pre-lung transplant assessments for patients with interstitial lung disease.
