Harvey Coxson is an Associate Professor of Radiology at the University of British Columbia as well as a Principal Investigator at the Centre for Heart Lung Innovation.  Dr Coxson trained with Dr James Hogg at UBC in quantitative pathology and now specializes in quantitative computed tomography of the lung with correlations to quantitative pathology and pulmonary function in smoking related diseases, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Dr Coxson works in collaboration with Drs, James Hogg, Don Sin, Peter Paré, Wan Tan, John Mayo and Jonathon Leipsic at UBC as well as Dr Grace Parraga at the Robarts Institute (Western University, London, ON) to develop and validate methods to phenotype subjects with COPD.  Dr Coxson is also actively studying a group of smoking subjects that are receiving regular CT scans as part of a BC Cancer Agency program headed by Dr Stephen Lam, and Dr John Mayo to follow their lung health. Collaborations are also in place with Dr Robert Levy in the BC Transplant Society to study the development of lung dysfunction following transplantation.

Dr Coxson’s lab is also the core image analysis facility in the CanCOLD Study and has served as the imaging core for the international study of novel endpoints in COPD funded by GlaxoSmithKline (ECLIPSE).
