We are entering a golden age of biomedical discovery, where new classes of therapeutics—such as mRNA, gene, and cell therapies—are expected to transform human health and drive economic growth over the next century. With world-class biomedical researchers and a vibrant life sciences ecosystem, BC has a tremendous opportunity to lead this global transformation and shape a more healthy, sustainable and innovative future for British Columbia.

This panel of UBC experts and B.C. business leaders will explore the critical role that bio-innovation will play in British Columbia's economic and social prosperity, and what is needed to strengthen the overall ecosystem, from research and talent development to commercialization.
