Project Description

In collaboration with Dr. Erin Styles, director of the Masters of Health Sciences program in Medical Genomics at the University of Toronto, we have produced a 2D animation that presents an overview of medical genomics. This animation is intended to explain what the field of genomics entails, highlight how recent genomic advancements are impacting healthcare and address the emerging need for professionals who can generate and interpret genomic data. Created primarily for prospective graduate students, this animation is featured on the program website and will be used as a recruitment tool.
