Dick, Alexander

Overview 

Dr. Dick received his MD from the University of Manitoba in 1994 and did his fellowship at the University of Western Ontario in 2000. Dr. Dick received certification as a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (FRCPC) in Internal Medicine (1997) and Cardiology (2000). He also received certification with the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Cardiovascular Diseases.

In 2003, he started his career at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre where he worked as an Interventional Cardiologist and later as an Associate Scientist. In 2006, he became Director of the new Imaging Research Centre for Cardiovascular Intervention, a Centre that he helped to develop from its inception. Dr. Dick joined the University of Ottawa Heart Institute in December 2009.

Research & Clinical Interests 

The areas of research that interest Dr. Dick are cardiovascular imaging and regenerative medicine including cardiovascular MRI for the diagnosis of ischemic heart disease, the image guidance of new interventional treatment procedures, the delivery of stem cell therapies for myocardial regeneration following myocardial infarction, and the in vivo quantification and measurement of efficacy of stem cell therapies.
