Topol is a world-renowned cardiologist, geneticist and author of the book The Patient Will See You Now. Goldman is a highly-regarded Toronto emergency room physician, author of the book The Secret Language of Doctors and host of the CBC Radio program "White Coat, Black Art". 

Explore the landscape of digital health care in Canada with government and industry leaders, learn about the research undertaken by SEAMO's Clinician Scientists and discover the cutting-edge work done by SEAMO Innovation Fund winners from the past three years. 

The 2018 SEAMO Research & Innovation Showcase features keynote presentations, panel discussions, Clinician Scientist engagement, a Health Care Innovation Hackathon facilitated by Joule Inc., research poster displays, networking opportunities and a wine and cheese reception. 

This full-day event is structured for participation in one of two interest streams: 

OPTION 1: Clinician Scientist Engagement

OPTION 2: Health Care Innovation Hackathon

OPTION 1: Clinician Scientist Engagement

Those choosing the Clinician Scientist Engagement stream will participate in two 85-minute sessions to learn about ground-breaking research conducted by SEAMO's Clinician Scientists and discover new opportunities for collaboration. 

Interactive morning and afternoon sessions are grouped by theme, with each researcher delivering a 10-minute presentation about their investigations, followed by a question and answer period. 

If you would like to participate in the Clinician Scientist Engagement stream of the 2018 SEAMO Research & Innovation Showcase, please select ticket Option 1 during registration. 

OPTION 2: Health Care Innovation Hackathon, facilitated by Joule Inc., a Canadian Medical Association company

Channel your creative energy and innovative spirit into improving health care in Ontario. Working with a team of like-minded physicians, health care professionals and entrepreneurs, you will have three hours to come up with a tangible solution to a front-line problem. 

A panel of esteemed judges will select the winning team, which will present its idea to foremost experts in the field of digital health care, during the closing ceremonies of the 2018 SEAMO Research & Innovation Showcase. 

Teams will be assigned the day of the event and questions focused on digital health innovation will be provided at the outset of the hackathon. Each team will be asked to conceptualize and develop a solution to one of two possible questions. 

Please note, any intellectual property (i.e. ideas, products, software, etc.) generated during the hackathon remain the property of individual participants. Event organizers and sponsors expressly disavow any claim to ownership of, and any compulsory license to, inventions made in the course of the hackathon.

Dr. Richard Birtwhistle, MD, MSc, CCFP, FCFP

Principal Investigator and Chair, Canadian Primary Care Sentinel Surveillance Network

As chair of CPCSSN, Dr. Richard Birtwhistle oversees the collection of patient information stored in electronic medical records across Canada. Using complex algorithms, CPCSSN combines different systems into a consistent format, enabling researchers to use data to answer questions about the incidence and treatment of common conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension, depression, COPD, osteoarthritis and other chronic diseases.

Dr. Jason A. Beyea, MD, PhD, FRCSC

Assistant Professor, Department of Otolaryngology, Queen's University

Dr. Jason A. Beyea's research is focused on the specialized area of Otolaryngology that studies chronic diseases of the ear. He hopes to learn who is prone to developing diseases of the ear, and how, and unlock the key to preventing them in the future. When he's not in the OR, clinic or classroom, he enjoys spending time with his family, running and travelling.

Dr. J. Gordon Boyd, MD, PhD, FRCPC

Assistant Professor, Departments of Medicine (Neurology) and Critical Care Medicine, Queen’s University

A self-professed "brain keener" from an early age, Dr. J. Gordon Boyd's research is focused on understanding the neurological consequences of illness, specifically how cognitive impairment happens, and how it can be prevented. When Boyd isn't using his own grey matter to study the "best organ in the body", he can be found hammering away on the drums for the Department of Medicine band, Old Docs, New Tricks.

Dr. D.J. Cook, MD, PhD, FRCS(C)

Assistant Professor, Department of Surgery (Neurosurgery), Queen's University

If it weren't for a chance encounter with a university neuroscience course, Dr. D.J. Cook would have been a farmer instead of a physician. Although he did realize his dream of owning a farm (and the national champion Black Angus female two years running), Cook spends the majority of his day in a lab using functional MRI connectivity maps to capture pictures of various brain states to predict stroke and identify concussions.

Dr. Jennifer A. Flemming, MD FRCP(C) MAS

Assistant Professor, Department of Medicine (Gastroenterology), Queen's University

Liver disease and cirrhosis of the liver is on the rise in Ontario and Dr. Jennifer A. Flemming has made it her mission to identify disease trends in the provincial patient population. By leveraging information available in large databases, she hopes to develop a chronic disease management strategy for those living with liver disease. A die-hard New England Patriots fan, Flemming still can't believe Tom Brady couldn't pull off another fourth-quarter comeback to win Super Bowl LII.

Dr. Ron Levy, MD, PhD

Assistant Professor, Department of Surgery (Neurosurgery), Queen's University

Dr. Ron Levy likens the tools in his latest study to "Kinect for Xbox". Levy uses portable hand tracking devices to measure movement and cognitive abnormalities in patients with Parkinson's disease. The devices allow for accurate, timely assessments in a point-of-care setting. Levy's primary research focus is the electrophysiological changes that occur in Parkinson’s and epilepsy. He spends his free time entertaining his wife and three children on backcountry camping trips.

Dr. David Maslove, MD, MS, FRCPC

Assistant Professor, Departments of Medicine (General Internal Medicine) and Critical Care Medicine, Queen’s University

Dr. David Maslove knows that finding the right treatment at the right time can make all the difference for recovery. Using precision medicine and wearable technology in the ICU, Maslove collects genomic data to see how patients respond to critical illness and what differentiates one person's physiological response from another. When he's not delving into Big Data, Maslove can be found collecting funky mid-century items, including his prized 1969 Fender Telecaster guitar.

Dr. J. Alberto Neder, MD, PhD

Professor, Department of Medicine (Respirology), Queen's University

After seeing his grandmother suffer from shortness of breath as a child, Dr. J. Alberto Neder focused his efforts on improving the quality of life of those living with heart and lung diseases. His patient-oriented research aims to change the way in which patients with COPD and heart failure are treated by focusing on further improving heart function. For Neder, the heart truly is "at the heart of the problem" when it comes to heart and lung diseases.

Dr. Neil Renwick, MD, PhD, MCTS, FCAP, MBChB

Assistant Professor, Department of Pathology & Molecular Medicine, Queen's University

Dr. Neil Renwick is hoping his study of small regulators of gene expression will one day make a big impact. Renwick is examining the miRNA active in neuroendorcine tumors to identify and classify those that can eventually be used as therapeutic targets. Research in the Renwick Lab at Queen's University is focused on understanding post-transcriptional gene regulation in health and disease. Renwick has an ear for languages and speaks several, including Dutch, German, Thai and pidgin English.
