Doug_SteelDouglas Steel, Ph.D. is the founder of iE, which is the artistic extension of DaVinci’s Workshop The two entities have a loose affiliation. In his capacity as Creative Director of DaVinci’s , Doug identifies unmet needs in the field of non-invasive medical devices, and brings together a diverse range of existing technologies to create an integrated device or platform that solves that problem or meets the need. Such technologies might be licensed from a University, accessed through a co-development agreement with another company, purchased in the marketplace, or cobbled together in-house. If the market is favourable, the platform or device is out-licensed or spun out as a separate company. At iE, Doug and the team utilize a similar approach to develop immersive and interactive installations that combine art and science.
Doug comes from a background of 30 years in pharmaceutical drug design and discovery, and research project management and implementation. He is the author of over 20 publications in scientific journals and books in the areas of drug design, drug discovery, and marine biochemistry. He has also written over 30 technology articles in the popular press.

Dr. Steel was an NIH postdoctoral research fellow in the Neuroscience Program at the University of Utah. He holds a Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences from Columbia University, an M.Phil. in Pathology from Columbia, an M.S. in Psychobiology from the University of Florida, and a B.A. in Biology from Kalamazoo College. He also held pharmaceutical research positions at The Upjohn Company, CIBA-Geigy, and Syntex Pharmaceuticals.
