Michael Daly, PhD
Michael Daly is a biomedical research engineer developing innovative technology to advance cancer surgery. Since 2005, he has been a member of UHN’s Guided Therapeutics (GTx) research program, working with Dr. Jonathan Irish and his team of surgical residents and fellows on translational studies in image-guided surgery. Concurrently, he completed his Ph.D. in 2018 from the Institute of Medical Science at the University of Toronto, under the supervision of Dr. David Jaffray. The focus of his thesis was image-guided computational methods for intraoperative fluorescence quantification. He was the recipient of a Frederick Banting and Charles Best Doctoral Award from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR). Michael also has a B.Sc. in Mathematics and Engineering from Queen’s University and an M.A.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from McMaster University, and spent two years working in the wireless communications industry for a Silicon Valley start-up, ArrayComm. Michael is thankful for funding support from the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, including the Hatch, RACH, Strobele and Garron Funds. His research interests include technology development for intraoperative cone-beam CT imaging, surgical navigation, and fluorescence tomography, all with the goal of improving surgical outcomes for cancer patients.
