Sarah O'Meara, BSc (Hons) MBA CMgr MCMI

Associate Director of Strategy and Delivery

My role spans across all of Scientific Operations functional areas, supporting the Director of Scientific Operations and the Scientific Operations Senior Leadership Team in the development and implementation of Scientific Operations strategic plans.

About Sarah

I also support our operational departments through:

  • Providing high-quality, professional administrative support to enable our leadership team, delivered through our Administration Team.
  • Development and implementation of a quality policy delivered through our quality managers and champions.
  • Managing strategic relationships between Scientific Operations and faculty groups, internal/external partners and collaborators.
  • Ensuring the sharing of knowledge and expertise between departments through our matrix structures.

Additionally, I champion the activities of the Administration Network, overseen by our Administration Network Coordinator, which is an important support mechanism for this group of staff.

I am passionate about understanding organisational culture and how it influences organisational outcomes. I, therefore, take an inclusive approach to leadership and management at the Wellcome Sanger Institute. Valuing team contributions and equipping people to excel in their roles, contributes to our success.
