Executive Program Manager
Vivian completed her graduate degree at the University of Toronto in the Department of Molecular Genetics with a focus on epigenetics and gene regulation. She continued to grow her translational research and management capabilities in the Department of Biochemistry, managing several labs and briefly joining an early stage venture that would later become one of H2i’s mentored companies, Micromensio. Vivian returns to the University of Toronto from the rich entrepreneurial ecosystem of Kitchener-Waterloo. Having helped to create the University of Waterloo’s Science Innovation Hub, Vivian is no stranger to guiding the next generation of innovators in transforming their ideas to address the needs of today and tomorrow. She is excited and grateful to be able to bring her dedication to creating equitable, diverse programming and her experience in research management to the H2i team.
