Anthony Hanley PhDDepartment of Nutritional Sciences

Dr. Hanley received his PhD in epidemiology from the University of Toronto in 2000, and was subsequently a post-doctoral fellow in the Division of Clinical Epidemiology, University of Texas Health Sciences Centre at San Antonio.  From 2002-2005 he was a research scientist in the Leadership Sinai Centre for Diabetes at Mount Sinai Hospital and an Assistant Professor in the Departments of Medicine and Public Health Sciences at the University of Toronto.  Since 2005, he has been a faculty member in the Department of Nutritional Sciences where he teaches, conducts research, and supervises graduate students.  Dr. Hanley is currently an Associate Professor and holds a Tier II Canada Research Chair in Diabetes Epidemiology.  He is also the Graduate Coordinator (Admissions and Awards) for the Department and has also served on over 30 graduate advisory committees.

My graduate students are my top priority and I spend many hours per week in one-on-one meetings to provide guidance and mentoring and to review progress. I endeavor to expose my graduate students to the full spectrum of the research process, including the conceptualization of research questions, preparation of grant applications, data collection, analysis, as well as manuscript preparation, submission and revision. My goal in graduate supervision is for my trainees to emerge from their program fully prepared for the next stage of their academic lives (further training or independent positions) through the experience of being fully immersed in the research process.
