Our Team

Our Team

Our deliberation team is a multi-disciplinary, internationally renowned collective of researchers from British Columbia and Ontario. We have gained a breadth and depth of experience over the past 15 years through conducting public deliberations on important policy issues like cancer drug funding, biobanks, and data use and protection. Our work is widely published and has informed policies and laws, changed professional practices, and transformed how research and clinical activities are governed.
