Biography
Ewan Goligher studied medicine at the University of British Columbia and trained in internal medicine and critical care medicine at the University of Toronto. Upon completion of his clinical training, he undertook Doctoral studies in physiology at the University of Toronto, completing the PhD in 2016. His research aims to delineate mechanisms of injury from mechanical ventilation with a view to prevention and treatment in order to improve outcomes for patients with acute respiratory failure around the globe.

Area of academic focus
Mechanisms and outcomes of patient-ventilator interaction. Respiratory muscle injury from mechanical ventilation, and its impact on patient outcomes.
