Strengthening the critical path from discovery to application
Genome BC works with numerous world-class partners to translate genomics discoveries into applications for use in key economic sectors in BC and elsewhere – health, agriculture, bioenergy, fish & fisheries, forestry, mining and environment.
Our primary aim is to catalyze strategic partnerships between end-users, researchers, research institutes and funders. The resulting collaborations are expected to create new funding programs and investment opportunities focused on translating innovations into applications.
To date we’ve invested over $625 million in genomics research and technology – including $50 million towards the creation of state-of-the-art enabling technologies – and expect to invest another $340 million within the next five years. This funding is targeted across basic, translational, and pre-commercial research and development.
Our funded projects have attracted over 100 national and international co-funders, including major research institutions, world-class pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies and philanthropic organizations.
We are always seeking new partnerships and alliances. Please contact us to explore opportunities.
