July 23, 2019

July 23, 2019 – In a recent announcement from Genome Canada, seven (7) Ontario-led and three (3) Ontario co-led projects were awarded a total of $16 million in funding from the Genome Canada Genomics and Applied Partnership Program (GAPP) and Large Scale Applied Research Program (LSARP).

Ontario Genomics is so proud to be working with these talented teams. These programs fund translational research and development projects that address real-world challenges and opportunities as identified by industry, government, not-for-profits, and other “receptors” of genomics knowledge and technology.

An additional $30 million is being invested by industry, the Ontario government and other partners, for a total of over $46 million. This funding will help Ontario’s leading researchers produce dramatic breakthroughs in agriculture and across the bioeconomy, which promises to have major impacts on key economic sectors while also improving Canadians’ health, environment and creating new jobs in Ontario.
