    A Vancouver-born biomedical researcher Dr. Ono has served as the President of the University of Cincinnati (UC) in Cincinnati, Ohio. Under his leadership, UC achieved its largest enrollment in its history and received numerous accolades, including being named Public University of the Year by the Washington Center. Dr. Ono is widely recognized as a social media trailblazer in the post-secondary education sector—engaging campus communities and inspiring passionate interest in learning and research through an online presence that has captured the hearts of thousands. For Dr. Ono, returning to UBC is a homecoming of sorts. His father, Takashi Ono, is an accomplished mathematician, who formerly taught as a faculty member in UBC’s Math Department. His father is also a gifted pianist, who passed on his love of music to his son, who himself plays the cello.
