We are pleased to announce that Genome Canada, in partnership with the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), is seeking proposals for large-scale research projects that will demonstrate how genomics-based research can contribute to a more evidence-based approach to health and, thereby, improve health outcomes, and/or enhance the cost-effectiveness of the healthcare system. 

In keeping with Genome Canada’s mandate to invest in large-scale research, projects can range in budget from approximately $2 million to $10 million, over a term of up to four years. Genome Canada will provide 50% of funding for each project with the remainder to be obtained through co-funding from other sources.
