Jan - March 2021 (Biweekly Workshops)
In collaboration with Drs Tristan MacLean and Alana Wilcox, I am developing the Science Communication Toolbox for Researchers program for NSERC PermafrostNet researchers and trainees. This program is supported by an NSERC Science Communication Skills Pilot Grant.
I will be teaching the following workshops:
10 March 2021 | 12:30 - 2:30 PM EST, Free
What would you do if you could start coding for the living world? Come up with ways to reverse climate change? Cure cancer? Get rid of polluting plastics? Feed the world? Welcome to the world of Synthetic Biology, the field of science that involves redesigning organisms for useful purposes by engineering them to have new abilities – live-action coding for 21st-century problems.
Explore the frontiers of this new field: what it means, why it matters, and how it is being channelled for the world’s benefit. Join this online symposium with experts from genomics, ethics, law, and entrepreneurship to discover how synthetic biology is addressing global problems, and how you can be part of these solutions for our future.
