Genomic Monitoring of Pathogens in Water (GeMPaW)

We are proud to announce the launch of the new Genomic Monitoring of Pathogensin Water strategic initiative, led by Génome Canada.

This $10 million investment will help Canada defend its population, wildlife and environment from major threats posed by emerging pathogens and antimicrobial resistance (AMR), including antibiotic resistant bacteria and genes. Through cutting-edge genomic surveillance in water and pan-Canadian collaboration, this strategic initiative will prepare Canada for future pandemics and other emerging health challenges with a One Health approach.  


Explore the initiative’s first funding opportunity for a Community coordination and collaboration hub.
