Daring to Ask with Robert Hegele

With one-third of Canadian deaths each year the result of a heart attack or stroke, Dr. Robert Hegele is daring to ask how we can use DNA technology to improve these odds. By identifying genetic risk factors, he is making it possible to intervene earlier in life.

Daring to Ask is a series that profiles Canada Research Chairs and Endowed Research Chairs at Schulich Medicine & Dentistry. These researchers are advancing knowledge in their respective fields, asking and answering questions that challenge that status quo and seeking to improve patient care. It is essential research made possible by generous donors and the investment of funding agencies.
