Genome Canada Request for Applications - Genomic tools for the detection and surveillance of LISTERIA MONOCYTOGENES
Genome Canada, in partnership with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and Alberta Innovates – Bio solutions (Al-Bio), has issued a Request for Applications (RFA) for proposals focused on research that will demonstrate how genomics-based technologies can be used for a more evidence-based approach to the detection and surveillance of Listeria monocytogenes. This competition will result in the funding of one consortium in Canada to carry out this research.
Applicants: Applicants must form a consortium of researchers from a number of academic centres as well as scientists from the CFIA and possibly from other government departments and agencies. Applicants are encouraged to contact the Ontario Genomics Institute (OGI) early in the process for further information and to help facilitate the development of a consortium.
Duration: Up to eighteen (18) months.
Value: A total of $600,000 is available for this competition, which is contributed by Genome Canada, CFIA and Al-Bio. Although there is no other co-funding requirement, additional co-funding may be obtained from other sources for new or incremental research activities related to this project.
How to apply: The application process consists of two steps: (1) registration using OGI’s Registration Form and Suggested Reviewers Form, and (2) full application using the Full Application Package provided by OGI. The applicable deadlines are as follows:
Internal deadline – August 28, 2012 to Office of Research (Sylvie Roussel, Grants & Contracts Officer)
External deadline – September 4, 2012 to OGI via email at email@example.com
(2) Full Application
Internal deadline(with OR-5 and related documents) – September 18, 2012 to Office of Research (Sylvie Roussel, Grants & Contracts Officer)
External deadline – October 2, 2012 to OGI via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
