The Canadian Club of Halton Peel is currently celebrating their 28th season of presenting guest dinner speakers on a wide range of subjects. Since 1986 the not-for-profit, volunteer-driven Canadian Club of Halton Peel has met monthly for delicious dinners, extremely knowledgeable and fascinating speakers and the opportunity to share an evening with friends. Dr. Pierre Meulien, PhD, President & CEO, Genome Canada, was recently hosted at the Oakville Conference Centre – his topic was “Our Personal Genome – The DNA Dilemma.”
A little over 3 years ago, Pierre was appointed President and CEO of Genome Canada which was established in 2000 and whose mission is “To harness the transformative power of genomics to deliver benefits to Canadians”. From 2007 to 2010, he was Chief Scientific Officer for Genome British Columbia. During this time, he facilitated the translation of genome-based technologies into end uses across many life science sectors.
