Genomics Integration Program - Human Health


  • Genomics Integration Program - Human Health

    Code : GQ
    Organisator : Santé humaine (GQ )
    Year : 2022


    In order to increase the value of genomic discoveries, the Genomics Integration Program offers grants ranging from $50,000 to $200,000 to fund collaborations between academic researchers and partners capable of implementing/commercializing the results of their research. The funds must be used to establish a proof of concept that can be implemented by the user partner at the end of the project, or that can be leveraged to secure subsequent funding for the implementation and/or commercialization.

     

    ELIGIBILITY

    1. Teams must be formed by at least:

      • One (1) researcher affiliated with a public research institution in Québec (university, college, or an institution with a research mandate), with adjunct status or equivalent, at minimum. The researcher may only submit one application per program cycle;
      • One (1) non-academic organization responsible for the implementation or commercialization of the results, including private companies, industrial consortia, non-profit organizations, hospitals, government agencies, etc.

    2. All non-academic organizations are eligible, regardless of size. However, they must demonstrate their capacity to implement or market the project results.

     

    3. Projects must be related to human health and meet a significant need of the non-academic partner.

     

    4. Projects must include at least one aspect derived from “omic” technologies (genomic, epigenomic, metabolomic, metagenomic, nutrigenomic, pharmacogenomic, proteomic, transcriptomic, etc.), for example: biomarker or target validation, pre-clinical studies for rare disease treatments, therapy response prediction tools, etc.

     

    5. Applicants must obtain co-funding to at least match Génome Québec funds (1:1), from sources other than the Ministère de l’Économie et Innovation du Québec (MEI). For example: from the commercial partner, foundations, government ministries and agencies, large corporations, individuals, etc. (letters of support to be included). Contributions can be in-kind if they are in Québec.
