Keynote Announced: Michael Wesolowski

Michael Wesolowski

Illumination 2016 is pleased to announce that Michael Wesolowski will be our keynote speaker for the conference this weekend!

Dr. Mike Wesolowski is the Research and Commercial Manager for the Sylvia Fedoruk Canadian Centre for Nuclear Innovation. His role includes strategic development of the research capacity of the Saskatchewan Centre for Cyclotron Sciences, strengthening existing relationships with academic partners and facilitating research and commercial access to the Cyclotron by securing relationships with potential users.

He is also cofounder of Luxsonic Technologies Incorporated, a pre-revenue Saskatchewan based start-up that was founded in 2014 by two medical imaging researchers who share a passion for developing innovative solutions to the day-to-day problems faced by medical professionals. A finalist in the 2015 Tech Venture Challenge, Luxsonic is currently developing products for the teleradiology marketplace. Dr. Wesolowski is also one of the founding members of the Society of Postdoctoral Scholars at the University of Saskatchewan, a volunteer organization that acts as a social hub and information portal for postdocs on campus while providing a formal and continuous structure through which postdocs can communicate with U of S administrators and the Canadian Association of Postdoctoral Scholars.

Dr. Wesolowski has a PhD in Physics from the University of Waterloo and wide ranging multidisciplinary research experience in physics, nanotechnology, nuclear pharmacokinetics and medical imaging. His doctoral work involved the characterization of carbon and organometallic nanomaterials which were synthesized using high intensity pulsed laser systems. This includes pioneering work in the facile laser based synthesis of 1D polyyne chains which may one day serve as wires in molecular devices. Prior to joining the Fedoruk Centre, Dr. Wesolowski was a Postdoctoral Fellow in Medical Imaging at the University of Saskatchewan where he worked on the development of x-ray phase contrast imaging technologies, detection of prostate cancer using positron emission tomography computed tomography (PET-CT), and the study of kidney function using newly developed techniques in nuclear medicine.
