Genome Canada is pleased to advise the research community of an upcoming funding opportunity – the 2017 Large-Scale Applied Research Project Competition – Genomics and Precision Health.

This funding opportunity will be aimed at supporting 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.
