Professor Richard Keijzer, MD, MSc, PhD is the Thorlakson Chair in Surgical Research and is the Director of Research for the Department of Surgery at the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada.

His clinical interest concentrates on minimal invasive Pediatric General Surgery and his research focuses on congenital anomalies in general and congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) and abnormal lung development. He has expertise in the mechanisms of normal and abnormal lung development due to congenital diaphragmatic hernia. Currently, his research focuses on delineating the role of microRNAs and circular RNAs during normal and abnormal lung development due to CDH. By improving the understanding of the pathogenesis of CDH and its abnormal lung development he aims to develop a prenatal therapeutic intervention to modulate the natural course of the abnormal lung development in these babies before they are born.


Dr. Keijzer was the first Pediatric Surgeon-Scientist funded in the Canadian Child Health Clinician Scientist Program. In 2018, he became the Head of Surgery in HSC-Children’s Hospital. He is the 2021 James IV Traveler for Canada.
