Senior Clinical Vice President Kathy Sabo and I are delighted to let you know that Dr. Vera Bril will assume the role of Interim Program Medical Director (PMD) for Krembil Neuroscience Centre, effective March 15, 2014.
As previously mentioned, Dr. Michael Fehlings is assuming a new position leading research for the Department of Surgery, University of Toronto. I am very appreciative that Dr. Bril has agreed to serve as PMD while we organize an external review of the program and search for a permanent leader. While serving as Interim PMD, Dr. Bril will continue as Director of Neurology at UHN and continue her role in the Department of Medicine. She will work closely with Kathy Sabo as well as Senior Clinical Director Jan Newton.
Vera Bril is a Professor of Medicine (Neurology) at the University of Toronto, Director of Neurology at University Health Network and Mount Sinai Hospital and the Krembil Family Chair in Neurology. She has particular expertise in the diagnosis and management of patients with complex neuromuscular disorders. Her research interests have centred on the diagnosis and evidence-based treatment of myasthenia gravis, inflammatory polyneuropathies, and diabetic sensorimotor polyneuropathy. Her work has helped set the standards for electrophysiological investigations in the definition and evaluation of the progression of chronic polyneuropathies. Her research has helped establish the role of intravenous immunoglobulin in the treatment of myasthenia gravis and the Guillain-Barré Syndrome, and the long-term treatment of chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy. She has acted in an advisory capacity to Health Canada and the FDA.
Dr. Bril also serves as the Deputy Physician-in-Chief for Economic Affairs for the Department of Medicine at University Health Network and Mount Sinai Hospital and Chair of the Economics committee. She is part of the Department of Medicine Executive Committee and helps administer this group of 300 physicians.
Please join me in thanking Vera for taking up this interim position.
