INVESTIGATORS

David Maslove, MD, MS, FRCPC (Director) is a clinician scientist in the Department of Medicine at Queen's University, and an internist and intensivist at Kingston General Hospital. His research focuses on exploring the nature of biomedical big data and its uses in critical care research.

J. Gordon Boyd, MD, PhD, FRCPC is a clinician scientist in the Department of Medicine at Queen's University, and a neurologist and intensivist at Kingston General Hospital. Dr. Boyd's research focuses on the long term neurologic consequences of critical illness and injury using multimodal data including proteomics, cerebral oxymetry, and robust assessments of cognitive and motor function

Phil Laird, MD, PhD is a Critical Care Fellow at Queen's University and Kingston General Hospital. An engineer by training, Dr. Laird has a PhD in physics, and extensive experience using computational tools to analyze large datasets. Dr. Laird oversees a number of student research projects, including those related to the analysis of pressure waveforms, and development of bedside clinical tools. He also contributes to developing the computation infrastructure used in waveform collection and analysis.
