  • A warm welcome to two new IMP staff

    Oct 19, 2016 | Posted by: Rhys Mahannah

    Please welcome two of the Island Medical Program's newest staff -- Elizabeth Heslop and Sara Ohora.


    Meet Liz, the IMP's new Technical Analyst with the MedIT team.

    Liz is from all over Vancouver Island, but she grew up mainly in Duncan and Qualicum Beach. She recently completed her B.Eng in Electrical Engineering at UVic. In her spare time, she loves to bike, play flute and tenor saxophone, and travel.

    You'll fine Liz in the Medical Sciences Building (MSB), room 161.


    Say hello to Sara, the Division of Medical Sciences' Research Operations Coordinator.

    After completing her MSc at Western University, Sara was eager for a change of scenery and began searching for opportunities on the West Coast. She moved to Victoria in 2014 after accepting a research assistant position in UVic’s Department of Biochemistry and Microbiology. A desire to pursue new career opportunities within UVic brought her to the IMP team, where she now supports DMS research staff and students.

    In her spare time she enjoys exploring the Island with her dog, Milo, playing soccer, and gardening.

    You'll find Sara in MSB 216.
