Dr. Aaron Phillips was trained in biosciences and mathematics. His appreciation of the elegant interactions between the nervous and cardiovascular systems, and how these interactions are disrupted in clinical conditions, has driven his research into the development of novel therapeutics for people with neurological health issues. After obtaining the Banting, CIHR, NSERC, and Craig Neilsen Fellowships as well as the Killam Research Award during his post-doc at the University of British Columba (UBC), he established his laboratory at the University of Calgary in 2017. He is now Professor of Physiology and Pharmacology, Clinical Neurosciences, and Cardiac Sciences. He has received the Brain Canada Future Leader Award, The Arthur Guyton Award in Excellence in Physiology from the American Physiological Society, and the Top 40 Under 40 from Avenue Magazine. His group publishes in top journals including Nature, Neurology, and Nature Biotechnology.
