Genomics on a mission

Driving impact and bridging the policy gap

Don’t miss this webinar and Q&A with Genome Canada’s Dr. Rob Annan, President and CEO, and Dr. Catalina Lopez-Correa, Chief Scientific Officer, on Wednesday, Jan. 26, 2022 from 11:30 am-12:30 pm ET. Hosted and moderated by Mehrdad Hariri, CEO and President of the Canadian Science Policy Centre, the webinar will explore the pivotal role genomics is playing in strengthening public health  amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and how this revolutionary science and platform technology is being applied in a focused and inclusive way to address other public policy priorities and drive impact to tackle the climate crisis.

The confluence of genomics, increased sequencing capabilities, AI and big data systems, and novel bioengineering tools is fueling a “digital biology” revolution driving economic growth and positive environmental impact.

DID YOU KNOW? Almost 60% of the physical inputs to the global economy could soon be produced biologically (McKinsey Global Institute).

Genome Canada is working with ecosystem partners to strategically harness the bio-revolution and leverage the power and promise of genomics to generate solutions to the major economic, environmental, health and social challenges of our time. Learn more about our mission-driven approach to genomics impact and join the conversation via the webinar Q&A.
