Dalton Wolfe, PhD

  • Scientist, Parkwood Institute Research - R2P, Lawson Health Research Institute

  • Assistant Professor, School of Health Studies - Western University

  • Adjunct Professor, Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry - Western University


Dalton is the lead of the R2P team, which reflects his passion for re-defining how researchers might work alongside practitioners and their patients to generate new knowledge at the same time as improving care and clinical outcomes. His primary research interest is in the area of knowledge mobilization and best practice implementation with a focus on physical activity, activity-based therapies and self-management.


R2P initiatives employ implementation science and participatory research methods to put in place practice-based research infrastructure with the goals of “learning while we are doing” and “improving while we are evaluating”. Dalton enjoys music and also loves all things nature (often boring people on hikes by pointing out all the different species of birds or some useless fact about this tree or that flower). He hopes to become proficient at curling over the next few years (ideally in time for the 2026 Winter Olympics).

Projects and Activities

Dalton gets involved in most R2P projects but mostly just needs to get out of the way to let our amazing team do its thing. Dalton enjoys working with both undergraduate and graduate students. Western University affiliations include the School of Health Studies where he leads an experiential learning course for students in the Rehabilitation Sciences Module and also the Health and Rehabilitation Sciences program where he supervises graduate students interested in connecting with our rehabilitation programs at Parkwood Institute.
