Life Science Partner Builds Canary’s Research and Development Team

­­Life Science Partner is pleased to announce the successful placements of Canary Medical’s Senior Research & Development team.

Canary Medical is an innovative MedTech company modernizing smart implants in the orthopedic, cardiovascular, and aesthetic markets. The company integrates a sensor and microprocessor system into FDA-cleared implantable medical devices to remotely gather biometric data and transmit it back to physicians via the cloud to give real-time insights about the performance and safety of these products.

Partnering with Canary at its very inception, Life Science Partner recruited Chief Technology Officer Jeff Gross, VP of Technology Development Mark Phelps, VP of Research and Development Peter Schiller, VP of Operations Balakrishnan Shankar, and Senior Director of Regulatory Affairs & Quality Assurance Nora York. In turn, we worked with these leaders to recruit their technical teams who have been superstars in the fields of electronics, medical devices, and cloud software. These 7 talented, senior R&D engineers will help propel the company’s platform in telemedicine and medical devices.

The recruitment of Lan Herrington as Senior Quality Manager, Luis Dogue as Manager of Data Software, Kevin Gemmell as Senior Biomedical Engineer, David Mejia as Senior Manufacturing Engineer, Matthew Sturtevant as Senior Electromechanical Engineer, Ryan Peck as Senior Quality Engineer, and Reghu Rajan, MBA as Senior Systems Engineer will drive Canary Medical toward commercialization while pursuing their technology’s vast array of potential applications beyond the orthopedic space. They each bring to the company a track record of success and a combined expertise in the orthopedic and cardiovascular space with a broad range of experience from the medical device, healthcare, and information technology industries.
