Dr. Mark Boulos is an Assistant Professor of Medicine and Clinician-Investigator in the Division of Neurology at the University of Toronto. He graduated from the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto in 2006 and completed a residency in Adult Neurology in 2011. After a two-year clinical research fellowship in stroke and sleep neurology at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto, Dr. Boulos continued as a Staff Neurologist in the same institute. During his fellowship training, Dr. Boulos also completed a Master’s Degree which explored the association of sleep disorders with cerebrovascular disease.
Dr. Boulos’ area of academic interest is the association of cerebrovascular disease and cognitive impairment with sleep disorders, and particularly how sleep disorders may be implicated in the pathogenesis of TIA, stroke and dementia. In addition, he has an interest in home & in-hospital sleep monitoring, as well as the automated detection of sleep.
Dr. Boulos has published nearly 40 peer-reviewed journal articles, the majority of which he serves as the principal or senior author; he also holds publication credits on numerous book chapters, abstracts, and poster presentations. Moreover, he has been invited to speak to several national and international audiences, including symposia and oral presentations hosted by the Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN), World Stroke Congress, World Sleep Congress, American Academy of Neurology, Canadian Sleep Society, and the Canadian Stroke Congress. His work has also led to appearances with many major media outlets. Finally, he has been a mentor to many trainees, and most of his students are authors (often lead authors) on the resulting publications. Since starting at Sunnybrook, Dr. Boulos has supervised more than 40 research trainees at all levels of training, from undergraduates to post-doctoral candidates.
Dr. Boulos’ research has been supported by the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Canadian Stroke Network, the Canadian Partnership for Stroke Recovery, the Innovation Fund of the Academic Health Sciences Centres of Ontario, as well as several industry partners.
