Francisco Ibáñez-Carrasco PhD (He/Him). (I look angry on this pic, but I am not :)

You can make an appointment with me here

I’m Latinx-Canadian. I am an Assistant Professor in Learning Innovations at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto (2020 -2021) and member of The Canada-International HIV and Rehabilitation Research Collaborative (CIHRRC).

Since 2009, I have trained 70+ emerging socio-behavioral HIV researchers, 200+ community leaders, and designed 25+ E-modules in Universities Without Walls (WWW.UWOW.CA). You can read our latest publication here (Links to an external site).

My research expertise is in patient-oriented community-based research, Knowledge Transfer and Exchange (KTE), rehabilitation in the context of HIV and E-learning. I am passionate about collaborative learning through, and with, all media and modes.

What does eLearning look like? (click on pics below!!)

My non/fiction focuses on autopathography — the patient’s tale ( – Links to an external site.). I have lived with HIV since 1986 and worked in the HIV movement in Canada since 1989. This means, I have seen the good, the bad and the ugly of the AIDS pandemic in Canada.

In my spare time, I train in “animal flow”, plyometrics, and I roll with the punches too!
