OUR FIRST SPEAKERS AT DARWIN’S CIRCLE 2020

//darwins-circle.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Gardner_Sprecher_Portrait_Kreis_34.png
Lauren Gardner
Johns Hopkins University
Co-Director of the Center for Systems Science and Engineering
——
"We currently lack an established infrastructure for real-time reporting and open data sharing during an ongoing public health crisis. Moving forward, it is imperative that a standardized reporting system for systematically collecting, visualizing, and sharing high-quality data on emerging infectious and notifiable diseases in real-time is established."
//darwins-circle.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Penninger_Sprecher_Portrait_Kreis_34.png
Josef Penninger
University of British Columbia
Director at Life Science Institute
——
"Genes hold the key to the mysteries of health and disease. We alter and study genes in mice, haploid cells, and organoids to unravel basic principles of human development and mechanisms of disease pathogenesis. This knowledge leads to better therapies."

We, therefore, take responsibility for ensuring the success of digital projects."
