Dr. Lincoln is a geneticist and neurologist at the BARLO Multiple Sclerosis Centre at St. Michael’s Hospital and a scientist at the Keenan Research Centre for Biomedical Science. He is an assistant professor in the Department of Medicine and Institute of Medical Science at the University of Toronto. His laboratory research uses transcriptomic and epigenetic assays, analyzed with modern genetic analysis techniques, to identify molecular mechanisms that drive multiple sclerosis and other autoimmune diseases. His lab is particularly interested in molecular interactions between genetic and environmental risk factors.
He has co-authored over 40 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters on multiple sclerosis and autoimmunity. He holds an Early Career award from the Waugh Family Foundation and a Career Transition Fellowship from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers.
