Dr. Ian Crandall received a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science in biochemistry from Queen's University before heading to Oxford to obtain his Doctor of Philosophy (D.Phil) in developmental biology from Oxford university in 1987. He spent a Post Doctoral Fellowship at the University of California working on Plasmodium falciparum (human malaria) before coming to Toronto to continue his work.

Dr. Crandall is interested in Tropical Diseases and world health with a primary research interest in the mechanisms whereby malaria is able to sequester and avoid its human host's immune system. He is also actively testing and developing new anti-malarial compounds.

Dr. Crandall is presently a Staff Scientist at the Toronto Medical Laboratories and oversees the operation of the Parasitology section and is responsible for teaching laboratory techniques to the local hospital residents. He is also an assistant Professor in the departments of Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology and the Department of Medicine at the University of Toronto and is currently responsible for teaching microbiology to Pharmacy students.
