The Future of Cardiac Imaging

Building A Medical Device Company in Canada

Join us for lunch on Wednesday, December 11 to learn about innovations that are helping to better diagnose and treat heart conditions, and about the challenges in founding and nurturing a medical device company in Canada.

Our featured guest speaker is cardiologist Dr. Brian Courtney of Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, who founded Colibri Technologies Inc. to bring his idea to market. The device he developed can see inside the heart in 3D, eclipsing today's catheter-based imaging technology and offering the potential to make cardiac procedures safer, faster, cheaper and more effective.

On the Front Lines of Humanitarianism:
The Profound Insights Gained from Being Kidnapped

with Steve Dennis (CivE 9T9)
On June 29, 2012, aid worker Steve Dennis and three colleagues were kidnapped in a brazen attack at the Dadaab refugee camps in Kenya and marched to Somalia before being rescued three days later. After 10 years of working closely with and for populations in dire need, Steve now had a personal understanding of what it meant to be vulnerable and dependent on other people’s assistance. Steve will recount his abduction with a focus on three profound insights he gained.

Hosted by the Class of 5T3, the Skule Lunch and Learn Series offers alumni the opportunity to gather on the second Wednesday of each month and find out more about U of T Engineering and the broader world. See a list of past speakers, and learn more about the series and its history.
