September 28, 2020
12:00 PM

In partnership with Ontario Genomics

“Editing our Economic Future: The Power of CRISPR” will showcase a conversation between Gairdner Foundation laureates and leading Canadian researchers on using the opportunities and applications of gene editing, specifically by using CRISPR/Cas9, to transform multiple sectors, from therapeutics to diagnostics, agriculture, and low carbon manufacturing, all of which will have a profound impact on our economy.

This discussion, moderated by Janet Rossant with centre on the development of these molecular tools and their applications, and potential challenges to adoption. In addition, Canadian researchers will speak about how they are applying gene editing to address problems like cancer treatment and fungal resistance for crops.
