Genome Canada 2017 Large-Scale Applied Research Project (LSARP) Competition

Mon. Nov. 14, 2016

This funding opportunity will be aimed at supporting projects that will demonstrate how genomics-based research can contribute to a more evidence-based approach to health and, thereby, improve health outcomes, and/or enhance the cost-effectiveness of the healthcare system.  

Genome Canada will provide support for projects, ranging in size from $2 million to $10 million in total project budget, over a term of up to four years. Genome Canada will provide a portion of funding for each project with the remainder to be obtained through co-funding from other sources. The exact co-funding ratio will be available at the time of launch.

Applicants will be required to apply for funding through their regional Genome Centre. The application process will be comprised of three steps: Registration, Pre-Application and Full Application.  Based on a January 2017 Competition launch, the deadline for Registrations is expected to be in March, 2017.
