Dr. Andrea Doria is associate professor and co-director of the research fellowship program in the department of medical imaging at the University of Toronto School of Medicine. She is also director of Research Education - Diagnostic Imaging at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto.
Dr. Doria received her medical degree from the Universidade Federal do Parana, Brazil, in 1992, and did her training in pediatrics and radiology at the Universidade de Sao Paulo, Brazil. Following this clinical training she received a PhD in medical sciences from the Universidade de Sao Paulo, Brazil, in 2000, developing a thesis, "MR Imaging Evaluation of the Progression of Articular Changes in the Knees of Children with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis." She then moved to Canada to pursue a fellowship in pediatric radiology, during which she obtained a master's degree in clinical epidemiology at the University of Toronto in 2003. During her fellowship her research work was recognized with two prestigious awards from the Society of Pediatric Radiology: the 2002 John Caffey Award for her work on BOLD MRI in experimental arthritis and the 2003 John Kirkpatrick Young Investigator Award for her meta-analysis in appendicitis.
Her passion is the investigation of potential imaging markers to track angiogenesis-related factors (cause) and early cartilage degeneration (effect) in arthritis. Her teaching interests include the development and implementation of a course on "Introduction to Research for Radiologists" with the goal of improving the quality of research in radiology. The final goal of her work is to improve the quality of delivery of healthcare to children by integration of academic excellence in research, teaching and clinical work.
