Canadian farmers, entrepreneurs and health care workers to benefit from new investment in research

Putting research in the hands of those who use it to create and innovate leads to increased competitiveness, economic growth and job creation. That’s why the Government of Canada continues to support the country’s researchers whose discoveries inspire entrepreneurs and innovators in the agriculture, health and commercial sectors.

Genomics in Society Interdisciplinary Research Teams

he uptake of genomic-based innovations can be affected by various social, economic and environmental factors, including legal and regulatory requirements, especially when they represent significant changes to current practices. Already, research into the implications of genomics in society (GE3LS research[1]) conducted through Large-Scale Applied Research Projects (LSARPs) helps better understand these factors primarily in the context of individual projects, but also in relation to sectors. However, to ensure the effective and responsible translation of innovative genomic[2] applications, Genome Canada has developed a Genomics in Society Interdisciplinary Research Teams Program to facilitate collaborations and dialogue between researchers and other key stakeholders whose sectors stand to be transformed by genomics advances.

Genome 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.

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.
