It has come to our attention that one of our own has been recognized internationally for their outstanding service and exceptional contribution as a reviewer for CardioVascular and Interventional Radiology (CVIR). We would like to congratulate Dr. Sean Kennedy for being recognized by CVIR for his outstanding service to the journal for the most reviews carried out in 2021.

Sean was born and raised in Toronto. He majored in biochemistry and biology at the University of Toronto for his undergraduate studies followed by McMaster University for medical school. Following this, he returned to Toronto to complete both his diagnostic radiology residency as well as an interventional radiology fellowship at JDMI (UHN and Mt. Sinai).

During his time at McMaster, he developed a passion for clinical epidemiology, meta-analysis, systematic reviews and evidence-based medicine and sought to apply them to the field of IR. This has culminated to date in over 50 peer-reviewed publications.

Following his fellowship, in 2021, he was recruited to join Humber River Hospital in Toronto. His current clinical interests include embolotherapy, complex dialysis/venous access, venous disease, interventional oncology, and spine intervention including vertebroplasty/kyphoplasty.
