Ilan WeinrebAssistant Professor | Toronto, Ontario
Dr. Ilan Weinreb is an assistant professor of pathology at the University of Toronto. He received his M.D. at the University of Toronto in 2001. After a brief career in a general surgery residency, he “saw the light” and switched to the anatomical pathology residency at the University of Toronto and graduated in 2006.
He pursued a fellowship in head and neck pathology under the mentorship of Dr. Bayardo Perez-Ordonez and also spent time with Dr. Jennifer Hunt at the Cleveland Clinic. He started his head and neck pathology position in 2007 at the University Health Network in Toronto where he now practices head and neck pathology exclusively in a fully subspecialized department.
Dr. Weinreb is currently the director of the head and neck pathology fellowship program at the University of Toronto. In addition to teaching, Dr. Weinreb has research interests in head and neck pathology, especially with respect to the salivary gland. He has a particular interest in the morphologic nuances of these difficult tumors as well as their putative precursor lesions.
He has also been interested in the molecular aspects of the salivary gland in recent years and has been involved in the discovery of several translocation-associated salivary carcinomas. He hopes to help generate a meaningful molecular classification of these tumors that compliments the morphologic diagnosis of difficult salivary gland lesions. He currently resides in Toronto with his wife Alexis and their two year old twins Leah and Jordan.
