Drs. Tillie Hackett and James Hogg have been recognized as world experts in bronchi by Expertscape, based on their publications in the field in the last 10 years. Both PIs have placed in the top 0.1% of scholars from around the world – congratulations on this achievement!

Dr. Tillie-Louise Hackett, PhD, ATSF, is a Tier I Canada Research Chair in Asthma and COPD Lung Pathobiology & Therapeutics, and Associate Professor and Vice-Chair of Research in the Department of Anesthesiology, Pharmacology & Therapeutics at the University of British Columbia. The goal of her research program is to further understand the airway microenvironment to determine therapeutic targets to prevent the initiation and perpetuation of pathological processes which contribute to obstructive airway diseases like asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Dr. Hogg has been on the staff of the University of British Columbia located at St. Paul’s Hospital since 1977 and is currently an Emeritus Professor of Pathology at UBC. He maintains an active research program focused on the inflammatory process in the lung, with particular reference to the structure and function of the lungs in COPD.
