Ken Knox is a former Ontario Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Deputy Minister of Energy, Science and Technology. He has extensive experience leading Canadian science, technology and innovation organizations including the Ontario Research and Development Challenge Fund, Ontario Genomics Institute and the Innovation Institute of Ontario.
