The Gairdner presentation was hosted by Dalhousie Medical School and was sponsored by Royal Bank of Canada (RBC). Dr. Lynne Maquat spoke about her research concerning genetics, specifically ribonucleic acid (RNA).
The presentation also included information on pursuing careers and research in the field of science.
This is the first year that they held the presentation in New Brunswick. The presentation took place in Fredericton and was streamed live. Schools from Miramichi, St John, Waterville and Moncton all joined the presentation and were able to ask the scientists questions about their careers and research.
