Research Interests

Dr Philip’s research interests are focused on the regulation of TGF-b action in biological processes including cutaneous wound healing and scarring and cartilage repair, and in human diseases such scleroderma and Dupuytren’s Disease (fibrosis), squamous cell carcinoma and osteoarthritis.

Her research group’s overarching goal is to understand the cellular mechanisms underlying the regulation of transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) signaling pathways and their role in diseases such as organ fibrosis, osteoarthritis and squamous cell carcinoma. Their team uses a combination of molecular and genetic approaches employing in vitro, in vivo and ex vivo models to study regulation of distinct TGF-beta signaling pathways, their cross talk with other signaling pathways and networks.


Anie Philip is a full professor in the Department of Surgery, at McGill University and a Senior Scientist at the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Center. She is also the Director of Plastic Surgery Research and Experimental Surgery Graduate Program at McGill University. She is currently the President of the Skin Research Group Canada and a past member of the Board of Directors of the American Wound Healing Society, and the Canadian Connective Tissue Society.
