Jason Beiko

BA(Hons.), MSc, PhD, MD

Assistant Professor

Dr. Beiko was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He attended the University of Winnipeg where he completed a BA(Hons.) degree in psychology. An interest in learning and memory lead him to pursue graduate work at the University of Western Ontario. While working in Dr. Peter Cain's laboratory he obtained a MSc. for his work in developing a biochemical model of Alzheimer's disease and a PhD. for his work on the electrophysiological basis of learning and memory.

Dr. Beiko received his medical degree from the University of Ottawa prior to returning home to complete a neurosurgical residency at the U of M.  After residency Dr. Beiko completed a Neurosurgical Oncology Fellowship at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston Texas before joining the Neurosurgery Department at the Health Sciences Centre.

Dr. Beiko’s main clinical focus is in the treatment of patients with brain, spine, and peripheral nervous system cancer. Consequently, he also maintains a research interest in determining the effect that surgical resection and intrinsic glioma biology (e.g. IDH1 mutation status) has on patient outcome.

During his prolonged university career he was employed as a navigating officer in the Canadian Naval Reserve. He maintains an active interest in computer technology and photography. He is also an avid sports fan and plays golf and hockey whenever possible.
