Alberta Glycomics Centre
Business & Operations Manager
Edmonton, Canada Area

Having established himself as on of the country's foremost experts in Canadian literature and culture, Dr. Dyer has spent the past two decades of his professional life at the front line of innovation within Alberta. Whether teaching a generation of students the realities of innovation and commercialization to supporting the business behind the innovations of some of Alberta's finest science and technology teams, he has a unique perspective on how innovation works (and fails to work) in Canada as well as what might be needed to ensure that future generations master the skills needed to negotiate the ever-widening innovation gap.
