- Manager, Health Research Informatics
Sean Davidson, MASc
Sean started at Techna in 2012 and his portfolio of projects has encompassed both software- and hardware-based solutions to healthcare challenges. Current projects include: management of software development for the Princess Margaret Data Science program, where we are delivering tools to increase the findability of assets within the UHN research community; introduction of novel holographic display technology at the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre, which required navigating between close to a dozen different departments within the hospital to deliver first in the world technology to UHN; and development, testing and commercialization of novel radio-frequency ablation technology to increase local tumour control while reducing the impact of treatment on the patient. Sean also chairs the Platform Working Group for the Marathon of Hope Cancer Centre Network, whose goal is to share data between cancer centres across Canada, thereby driving innovation in cancer research and treatment delivery.
Prior to his life in Techna, Sean worked at UHN developing guidance and treatment planning software for minimally-invasive prostate cancer therapies. Sean received a Master’s in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Toronto.
