UPCOMING EVENT: JANUARY 10, 2023
Join SIP in Banff for an afternoon of learning, networking and discussion
This is an in-person only event taking place at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel in Alberta on Tuesday January 10, 2023 from 1:30pm-4:00pm.
Let's talk about new ideas in pork innovation ahead of the Banff Pork Seminar. Join us to learn, explore and meet with colleagues in the pork research community.
We're bringing together leading experts to discuss rapid advancements in gene editing while exploring possible future applications and considerations for the pork sector. For example, could gene editing ever be used to support invasive wild boar control or African swine fever, how would it work, and what should be considered at the outset from a public trust and regulatory perspective? How is gene editing already being used in other industries and is the pork sector willing, ready and able to use this technology?
