Roxana Sultan is the new Vice President of Health at the Vector Institute starting April 20, 2020.

“I’m very excited to join the Vector team and to work collaboratively with partners and stakeholders to drive the future of AI-enabled health,” said Sultan, an IHPME adjunct lecturer and Health Administration alumnae.

The Vector Institute aims to drive excellence and leadership in Canada’s knowledge, creation, and use of artificial intelligence (AI) to foster economic growth and improve the lives of Canadians. With significant talent in deep learning and machine learning, the Institute is a vibrant community of innovative problem-solvers, working across disciplines on both foundational AI research and specific applications.

In the VP Health role, Sultan will lead Vector’s strategic contributions to Ontario and Canada’s health sector, drive applications of AI to life sciences, foster research and health industry projects, and lead initiatives to advance the health space.

“Teaching an intelligent medicine, machine learning, and knowledge representation course at IHPME, I appreciate the potential for AI to drive improvements to the health system. Vector is substantially increasing its activities and goals for AI to benefit health care in Ontario and Canada,” said Sultan, who is the former Executive Director of the Provincial Council for Maternal and Child Health.

She has also held leadership roles with The Hincks-Dellcrest Centre (now the SickKids Centre for Community Mental Health), the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre in the University Health Network, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, Cancer Care Ontario, and the Hospital for Sick Children.  She also serves as the Vice Chair of the Board of the Canadian Cancer Society – Ontario Division.
