Dr. Philip completed his PhD. in Medical Science from the McMaster University. His thesis focused on understanding the role of intestinal microbiota in brain function and behaviour.

His current research is to understand the role of intestinal microbiota in the neurobiology of psychiatric disorders. This work will determine if mood disorders associated with changes in intestinal microbiota converge on the same brain pathways implicated in neuropsychiatric disorders.
