On January 9, 2017, the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) announced an investment of $328 million in 17 national research facilities. The Metabolomics Innovation Centre (TMIC) received $6 million in funding through CFI’s Major Science Initiatives (MSI) Fund thus ensuring its continued status as a cutting-edge, world-class facility.
“This new funding will give TMIC the long-term stability it needs to make both Alberta and Canada a real leader in metabolomics research and development. …it will allow hundreds of scientists from across Canada to come train and conduct research at TMIC and to make metabolomics an integral part of their research program. It will also foster the growth of Canada’s emerging metabolomics industry, where made-in-Canada ideas and technologies can be used in precision medicine, precision farming, and environmental monitoring.” – David Wishart
With the support of CFI, the field of metabolomics research will continue to grow strong… and TMIC will be at the forefront of this exciting field of science.
