Founded in 2016 at the University of Toronto, GSGGB - Global Society for Genetics and Genome Biology, is an international organization that strives to advance scientific research towards better treatments and cures for genetic disorders. We aim to accomplish our vision through a wide-spectrum of innovative projects, fundraising events, academic seminars, conferences, as well as local community and global outreach initiatives.
GSGGB focuses mainly on educating both its members and the public about genetic diseases. We strive to raise awareness about a wide array of genetic conditions, from the very rare Hutchinson–Gilford Progeria syndrome to the very common cystic fibrosis. GSGGB will also invite guest speakers who are leaders in their field of research, to talk about their research and educate the club members about the topics discussed. Furthermore, we try to raise funds for foundations such as the Canadian Gene Cure foundation to support research grants and clinical studies in the field of genetics.
