What’s the benefit of radically interdisciplinary collaborations between social science/humanities researchers and natural/biomedical scientists? How do these collaborations advance individual researchers’ work as well as larger societal goals? How can funders and academic institutions encourage such collaborations to be more frequent and productive? Genome Canada, a leading Canadian sponsor of radically interdisciplinary research through its Genomics in Society program, is convening this panel to share insights with social science and humanities researchers, university administrators and other funding agencies.

Panellists: Tania Bubela, School of Public Health, University of Alberta; Graham Carr, Vice-President, Research and Graduate Studies, Concordia University;  Kari Doerksen, Director of Business Development, Genome Prairie.

This event is hosted by Genome Canada.
