Global Society for Genetics and Genome Biology (GSGGB) St George

Founded in 2016 at the University of Toronto, Global Society for Genetics and Genome Biology (GSGGB), 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. We regularly invite guest speakers to present at seminars that are open to all members of the public. 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. Our mentorship team also organizes programs for secondary school students that are interested in pursuing a career in biology after high school graduation.
