Dr. Melissa Allwood


Dr. Allwood has an interest in cardiorespiratory pathophysiology with respect to both fundamental science and translational medicine. Her primary research interests include the impact of hypoxia on cardiac development as well as the how anemia and/or hypoxia impacts practices in anesthesiology and the clinical outcomes of cardiovascular, pulmonary and haematological disease. Dr. Allwood completed her PhD at the University of Guelph in hypoxia physiology and is currently a 4th year medical student at the University of Toronto, exploring where her residency position could align with her clinical research interests.
