Speaker Year | Vancouver 2018

Jodi has been involved with a number of leading biotechnology companies in Alberta, including founding Keystone Labs in 2005. She started her career at the Alberta Research Council as a technologist in the Quality Control lab. It was there at the bench that the dream of starting her own lab began. Over the next 10 years, she worked with innovative teams at Chenomx and QSV Biologics in supervisory and management roles. In 2004, the dream of a contract test lab began to come together. She is now a part of cutting-edge innovation that is developing real-time testing technology. It’s what gets her up in the morning and at the end of the day she knows that we have made a real difference in the quality of people’s lives. Jodi holds a BSc in Medical Laboratory Science from the University of Alberta. Keystone Labs is a GMP pharmaceutical lab that has worked with cannabis since 2015 with an LD license. With a 3,000 sqft. Lab expansion and four new pieces of testing equipment, Keystone will meet all the expected Health Canada testing requirements as well as for product developers and research projects.
