Dr. Steve Lin is an emergency physician, trauma team leader, and Scientist in the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute of St. Michael’s Hospital. He is an Assistant Professor and clinician-scientist in the Division of Emergency Medicine, Department of Medicine at the University of Toronto. Dr. Lin is establishing a research program of translational science to optimize resuscitation during cardiac arrest or life-threatening injuries. He is interested in developing and evaluating drug therapies and devices that allow for goal-directed therapy in resuscitation. He has received multiple awards and grants from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, American Heart Association, Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians and Physicians’ Services Incorporated Foundation.

He is an Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) medical director and instructor at the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, and is currently the medical director of the ACLS education program at St. Michael’s Hospital.
