Precision Health Initiative – Rare Diseases: Clinical Implementation Projects

Genome Canada has launched a national initiative for the clinical implementation of precision health, focusing on a rare disease pilot program as a foundational step.In order to initiate this ambitious program, Genome Canada is encouraging the submission of projects to the Genomic Applications Partnership Program (GAPP) that will translate research into clinical implementation with the goal of having genome sequencing offered as a clinical genetic test within an established diagnostic and clinical care pathway for rare diseases. The other activities in the Precision Health Initiative – Rare Diseases will be advanced through other funding mechanisms.

2018 Large-Scale Applied Research Project Competition

This funding opportunity builds on the complementary mandates of Genome Canada and AAFC and provides an opportunity to bring together and maximize the effectiveness of the research communities, infrastructure, and resources supported by both organizations. This funding opportunity makes it possible to collaboratively carry out joint projects with AAFC researchers, where Genome Canada funds will support the Genome Canada eligible researchers and AAFC funds will support the AAFC researchers.

Genomics Day

This workshop will help provide Manitoba researchers information about Genome Canada funding opportunities and how past and current researchers have already successfully been awarded Genome Canada grants. This workshop will allow researchers to also participate in a facilitated working session to generate compelling project ideas and create winning teams.
