The Krembil Research Institute is pleased to welcome Sara Yuan and Lynn Saber to the Krembil communications team.  

Meet Sara Yuan 
Sara is a recent graduate of the Master of Media in Journalism and Communication program at Western University. In 2022, she completed a summer internship with UHN's Public Affairs and Communications team, during which she learned about and was inspired by the cutting-edge research conducted by Krembil investigators. 

As a Public Affairs Associate for the Donald K. Johnson Eye Institute, Sara will work closely with the Institute’s research and clinical teams to promote their work. She will also develop and manage the Institute’s social media accounts. 

Sara was drawn to the Krembil Research Institute for the opportunity to work with our world-leading scientists and clinicians, and to contribute to UHN’s goal of improving the health and wellbeing of individuals around the world. 

“I am looking forward to working with the team and using the skills that I gained in my internship to help build awareness and excitement around the incredible research taking place at the Donald K. Johnson Eye Institute.”   

Meet Lynn Saber 
Lynn holds a Bachelor of Science from the University of Ottawa and a Master’s in Professional Communication from Toronto Metropolitan University. She joined the Schroeder Arthritis Institute in 2021 as a Social and Visual Communications intern and transitioned to her current role in April 2022. 

As a Digital Content and Communications Specialist for the Schroeder Arthritis Institute, Lynn's responsibilities include developing internal and external communications to highlight the Institute’s discoveries in the fields of arthritis and rheumatic diseases, including digital content, websites and the Institute's quarterly newsletter, and managing the Institute's social media channels. She also helps to coordinate large events such as the International Conference on Arthritis and to organize seminars such as the Arthritis Web Seminar Series. 

Lynn is excited to engage the public and find the best ways to share the Institute’s research activities and successes with the world. “I am so grateful that I get to work with this inspiring team and contribute to work that makes a difference.”
