Québec and France join forces in genomics research

Génome Québec is pleased to announce that it concluded two partnerships agreements in genomics with the Commissariat à l’énergie atomique et aux énergies alternatives and with Genopole.



These collaborations will foster precision medicine research, in particular with respect to some common diseases prevalent in Québec and in France. They will also support the development for better diagnoses and more efficient therapeutic solutions.

The agreements were signed on March 7 at the Chambre de commerce et d’industrie de région Paris Île-de-France, in the presence of Premier of Québec, Philippe Couillard, and Minister of State attached to the Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs, Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne.
