YEP Special Event: Open Source Biotechnology with Andrew Hessel

Mar 26 2009 - 5:00pm - 6:00pm

YEP Calgary is excited to announce that Andrew Hessel will be in Calgary for a single day and has graciously offered to present to YEP members.

Free for members, $5 for non-members (a lifetime YEP membership costs $30 and can be purchased at the door).

Andrew Hessel is a genomic scientist and consultant in DNA technologies. Andrew’s work is empowering a new generation of young Canadian researchers to tackle big biology-related problems like sustainable fuel production, environmental cleanup, superbugs and cancer. He is a strong supporter of open source biology for accelerating innovation and as a counterbalance to proprietary, profit-driven biotechnology R&D. In 2008, Andrew will launch an Alberta-based open source biotechnology venture that aims to begin development of personalized, affordable medicines for breast cancer.

Full details for this and other YEP events.

Special thanks to ConocoPhilips for creating this opportunity for YEP members.
