9:00 am – 2:30 pm
University of Toronto Macleod Auditorium

Inspired by the gene-editing pioneers of the 2016 Canada Gairdner International Awards, this one-day symposium will step beyond the discovery of the CRISPR-Cas system to explore gene editing’s potential across the biological spectrum, and how advances in human health, disease control & environmental engineering could change our perspective & place in the natural world.
