Leading teams and managing programs to advance healthcare research for many years, I have gained broad experience and background. This includes strong expertise in biobanking, project management, business planning for research, and RNA/DNA/protein methodologies. In all, I have nearly 20 years of professional experience in the biobanking, healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors, having held a number of leadership and research roles at OICR, MaRS, the STTARR Innovation Centre at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and the Microarray Centre (both at University Health Network) and in the corporate sector at Cangene Corporation and Affinium Pharmaceuticals. Academic background combines a M.Sc. in Biological Sciences with Project Management certification/professional designation.
