Darius Bägli’s urology laboratory is located at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) Research Institute. SickKids is a world leader in both basic science and clinical research. The Research Institute and the Research Training Centre encourage and support training of post-doctoral fellows, graduate students and summer students through workshops seminars and training programs.

The Bägli Lab is focused on the study of obstructive bladder disease as well as uropathogenic E. coli. We are focused on finding novel therapeutic approaches to these diseases, involving both stem cell regeneration of bladder tissue, and manipulation of existing bladder cells towards a more normal phenotype. Our cystitis work involves finding novel therapeutic targets by investigating epigenetic changes due to infection. Our easy-going affable work atmosphere allows for a highly productive and collaborative group.

Please address all applications for research positions and enquiries to Dr. Darius Bägli at SickKids.
