We've funded over $850M in promising genomics-based projects across the research continuum: from applied research, proof-of-concept and company formation, right through to the early stages of product development, addressing the gap between angel investors, grant providers, and venture capitalists. Our priorities are aligned with the public and commercial needs of BC's strategic growth sectors – forestry, energy, mining & environment, agri-food, fisheries & aquaculture and human health. The results? New jobs, more competitive businesses, breakthrough scientific discoveries.
We’re the catalyst behind genomics innovation in BC with a mission to drive economic prosperity for our province and country well into the future.
Here’s the progress we’ve made since launching in 2000.
EVERY $1 INVESTED BY BC
HAS YIELDED UP TO $3 MORE FROM EXTERNAL SOURCES, INCLUDING THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.
Each day, Genome BC’s impact on the public grows. Our Geneskool roadshow is one of the most anticipated educational events of the school year; while our social media channels are a prime way for us to get our message out to people of all ages.
