Genome Canada's Pierre Meulien on the Power and Promise of Genomics

A decade ago the relatively new science of genomics in Canada saw 2 important events. One was an event organized by the Gairdner Foundation that brought together some of the best scientists and researchers in genomics. The other was the creation of Genome Canada, a not-for-profit organization that brings together partners from academic, industry, and government sectors to initiate and manager large scale genomics project.
This week the Gairdner Foundation and Genome Canada have come together to hold another landmark genomics event which once again brings together some of the best minds in the genomics field. Genomics: The Power and the Promise ?was held at the Ottawa Convention Centre and featured names like Eric Lander, Svante Paabo, Michael Hayden, Elizabeth Edwards, Bartha Knoppers and many more.
I've been fortunate to be able to interview top researchers in the biotechnolgy field at several of the annual conferences hosted by the Biotechnology Industry Organization in the U.S. and for the Power and Promise I have once again taken BioRadio on the road and talked to several of the people attending the event.
Today's first interview was with Pierre Meulien, CEO and President of Genome Canada and I started off by asking him what were some of the highlight from the first morning.
Here's the rest of the interview.
