Sloane Evariste, PhD
Sloane is a Funded Research Officer in the Faculty of Arts & Science at The University of Toronto, and the lead support person for the Science Sectoral units with a primary focus on supporting NSERC and CIHR grant application development (including crafting Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion-focused research training plans).

Sloane completed a Bachelor's degree in Life Sciences and a Master’s degree in Medicinal Chemistry at Paris Diderot University. Then, she pursued a PhD in Chemistry at the University of Rennes 1 focused on the development of new “π-conjugated organophosphorus systems and supramolecular assemblies”, and extended her research studies in this area as a Postdoctoral scholar at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.

Before working in research administration, she was also a University of Toronto Postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Chemistry, where she worked on water-soluble pendant polymers for flow cytometry. Throughout her research and travels, she gained valuable grant writing experience, a strong understanding of the importance of research funding for advancing research, as well as supporting research trainees and laboratory operations.
