Message from the
President and CEO
"Genomics is embedded deeply in the DNA of our organization."
"Génome Québec was conceived by visionaries and builders – politicians, academics, researchers and corporate leaders. They dreamed of promoting genomics research in Québec, a sector that was still underdeveloped at the end of the 90s.
Today, we are proud to note the many major breakthroughs made by our researchers in this area. One could say that genomics is embedded deeply in the DNA of our organization!
In addition to our focus on funding and competitiveness, our priority for the coming years will be to bring genomic applications and benefits to the community. When I joined Génome Québec, I took up the challenge of broadening the influence of genomics by making it a driving force of economic development in Québec. And the one thing I have learned throughout my career is that by working together and mobilizing our networks and resources, we can achieve anything. We can make genomics the world-changing force we know it to be, whether in health or the environment."
