NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The BC Proteomics Network said yesterday that it has received funding from the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research totaling $1.6 million over five years.
The money is a renewal of a previous five-year award from MSFHR, and is intended to help the network expand its proteomics-based offerings to clinical practices and health systems in British Columbia. It will also help the organization move toward financial sustainability.
"We thank the MSFHR for this new funding and are excited about the opportunity to grow proteomics resources in the province with the expectation of an improvement in healthcare practices over the next five years," Christoph Borchers, the network's scientific director, said in a statement.
Established in 2007, the BC Proteomics Network works to support research across the province and unify its proteomics resources.
