Linda Pires (Active) - The Hospital for Sick Children
|Award Type:||Program Manager|
After completing her Honorary Bachelor of Science at the University of Toronto in 2003, Linda joined the Division of Immunology and Allergy at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto where she rose from a summer lab student during her undergrad days, to the Centre Manager for the Canadian Centre for Primary Immunodeficiency at SickKids. With a keen mind for computer technology, and expertise in clinical and basic research, Linda executed clinical research projects while successively managing training and research programs for various stakeholders in the immunodeficiency family. She also managed clinical research trails for the Division and the SickKids Immunology Service lab. Her outstanding organizational and budgeting skills led her to the SickKids Learning Institute where she configured the Conference Management Centre that continues to be a successful resource for staff at SickKids. Linda is blissfully bananas with her husband, Ari, and two children, Evelyn (4 yrs) and Gavin (2yrs). She is passionate about singing, dancing, cleaning, databases and (of course) her family.
