Dawn ME Bowdish

Canada Research Chair in Aging & Immunity, McMaster University

Dr Dawn Bowdish is a Professor at McMaster University and the Canada Research Chair in Aging & Immunity. She studies how age-associated inflammation alters the immune system and how this ultimately increases susceptibility to pneumonia. Her team also studies how the aging immune system and the microbiome (the microbes that live on and in us) interact and how this can contribute to healthy or unhealthy aging. She is on the Board of Directors of the Ontario Lung Foundation where she advocates to increase research funding for lung health and to increase lung health in older adults.
