Dr. Cristian Linte
Assist. Prof. of Biomedical Engineering, Mayo Clinics, USA

Cristian A. Linte holds an academic appointment as Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, USA. He joined the Biomedical Imaging Resource as a research fellow in January 2011, sponsored by a NSERC post-doctoral fellowship to investigate novel paradigms for visualization and surgical navigation for minimally invasive therapy. Prior to his appointment at Mayo, Cristian completed his PhD in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Western Ontario during 2006–2010, under the mentorship of Dr. Terry Peters at Robarts Research Institute. His research focused on the development, evaluation and pre-clinical integration of image guidance techniques for surgical navigation of minimally invasive cardiac interventions. His research has been disseminated in more than 60 journal articles and peer-reviewed conference proceedings and has been recognized with several distinctions at international congresses. Cristian has secured over $500,000 in federal funding during his graduate and post-graduate academic training and he is currently a co-investigator on a NIH - NIBIB grant at Mayo Clinic aimed at the development of image guidance and modeling technologies for minimally invasive catheter-guided ablation therapy for atrial fibrillation treatment. Cristian has served on the scientific review boards of several journals and conferences and has organized several international workshops. In 2011, Cristian was recognized with the IEEE MGA GOLD Achievement Award for his leadership and contribution to the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society.
