Program Managers

Nicole Cancelliere is the Neurovascular Research Program Manager at St. Michael’s Hospital and also works as a medial radiation technologist specialized in supporting neurointerventional & robotic-assisted procedures. She completed her collaborative undergraduate degree and X-ray technology diploma at Queen’s University and the Eastern Ontario School of X-ray Technology in 2013, and then went on to complete her Master’s degree in Neuroscience.

As a clinical research technologist, Nicole works with both the clinical and research teams, supporting innovative patient care in the field of brain hemodynamics and neurovascular disease. As co-lead of the RADIS lab, the collaborative research team uses advanced technologies, including Robotics, AI, Dynamic Flow, Imaging and Simulation, to develop
new approaches to improve diagnosis and treatment of neurovascular diseases. Nicole is certified as a specialized neurovascular robotic technologist and was a part of Dr. Pereira’s clinical team which performed the world’s first robotic neurovascular intervention in the world on November 1, 2019.

She is also very passionate about advancing minimally invasive neurosurgery and radiography training & education and has helped run several ischemic and hemorrhagic workshops globally using advanced simulators and 3D-printed vascular models. She is also actively involved with the Medical Radiation Sciences program at the University of Toronto and Michener Institute where she is involved in course development and interventional
radiology education. Nicole sits on the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (CAMRT) Research Grant Committee that works to advance the field by providing financial support for worthy humanitarian, educational and scientific contributions through research by the profession. Nicole is committed to promoting a model of research integration with clinical specialty among future fellow technologists.
