Dr. McNally is a clinical investigator at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario Research Institute.

Dr. McNally is a clinical investigator at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario Research Institute. Dr. McNally’s primary research investigates the role of vitamin D in pediatric critical illness. This research has recently demonstrated that lower levels of vitamin D worsen critical illness and prolong PICU admission, and that blood levels of vitamin D levels are inadequate following surgery. Current and future research will focus on how to best optimize the vitamin D status of critically ill children through both pre-illness supplementation and post-illness rapid restoration strategies.
Dr. McNally also investigates susceptibility to severe RSV infection, and seeks to use newborn metabolite patterns to better understand risk and to help allocate interventions known or with the potential to reduce illness severity.
Dr. McNally is also leading an initiative intending to develop a platform for crowdsourcing knowledge synthesis and systematic review efforts (Insightscope).
