Please join the CSIS Bipartisan Alliance for Global Health Security, the CSIS Americas Program, and the Canadian Chamber of Commerce for a discussion on the opportunities to strengthen regional and global health security through greater cooperation between private, public, and non-profit institutions dedicated to life sciences research in the United States and Canada.

As highly integrated trade partners with a common border and shared concerns over the impacts of disease outbreaks, the United States and Canada have long collaborated on efforts to develop and deploy innovative medical countermeasures in responding to health crises. During the Covid-19 pandemic, the two countries deepened bilateral and multilateral engagement on public health, with an emphasis on scientific research to counter biological threats.

This event will delve into policies that can facilitate improved collaboration in the life sciences including in areas such as clinical trials, regulatory harmonization, supply chains, manufacturing, and stockpiling. It will also discuss what steps can be taken cooperatively to enhance readiness for future pandemics and health crises, while also creating jobs and stimulating economic growth. 

This event is made possible by the general support of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce. 


3:30-4:45pm: Panel Discussion

Moderated by Katherine Bliss, Senior Fellow and Director of the Immunizations and Health Systems Resilience, Global Health Policy Center.


5:00-7:00pm: Cocktail Reception

CSIS invites you to a networking reception after the conclusion of the event. Hors d'oeuvres and open bar will be available.
