Slinger Robert


Dr. Robert Slinger completed his medical degree at Queen’s University in 1990. He is a physician certified in pediatrics, pediatrics infectious diseases and medical microbiology by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. His research focuses on ways to rapidly diagnose and treat infectious diseases using molecular technologies. This includes development and evaluation of sensitive and specific tests capable of detecting the cause of these infections in less than one hour, so that patients can be given appropriate treatment immediately – for example, while still being seen in the Emergency Department – rather than waiting several days for test results.
