Manali Mukherjee
Assistant Professor, Medicine

Dr. Mukherjee is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Respirology, Department of Medicine, and a translational scientist affiliated with the Research Institute of St. Joe's, Hamilton. She has demonstrated expertise in investigating inflammatory mechanisms of chronic respiratory diseases, in particular autoimmunity, response to treatment and developing/validating clinical biomarkers. Dr Mukherjee has identified the presence of localized autoimmune responses in the airways of patients with complex airways disease, and determined their pathogenic role in driving disease severity. Of recent, she has identified autoimmune responses in acute-severe COVID and linked autoimmunity with post-acute COVID-19 sequelae (or Long COVID).

Dr. Mukherjee’s research program thus focusses on “Lung autoimmunity and biomarkers”. She is the current recipient of the Emerging Researcher Award in Allergic Asthma awarded conjointly by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Canadian Asthma, Allergy and Immunology Foundation (CAAIF). Her lab is funded by federal and non-federal sources including CIHR-ICRH and industry.

Current ongoing projects span from investigating mechanisms of disease to validating biomarkers in asthma, eGPA, COVID-19 and lung cancer.
