In celebration of Global Biotech Week, CDRD and BIOTECanada invite you to a thought-provoking evening to experience the change unfolding in real time.
Join futurist Dr. Juan Enriquez, noted author (As the Future Catches You), Harvard professor, biotechnology entrepreneur, and investor. Dr. Enriquez thinks and writes about the profound changes that genomics and other life sciences will bring in business, technology, politics and society.
Together we will explore the growing links between governmentâ€™s overall policy direction, and the social imperative of addressing global health challenges. The discussion will encompass the rapid expansion of genomics and precision medicine, the potential it holds for so many aspects of the system of care, the practical application of new knowledge for Canadian patients, and the enormous economic opportunity it presents for Canada.
