 About the Canadian Gene Cure Foundation:

The Canadian Gene Cure Foundation (CGCF) supports excellence in the research of human inherited diseases.Our key programs are designed to build a sustainable, cooperative research community in Canada:

•           The Canadian Gene Cure Foundation (CGCF) works to advance cures for inherited diseases by investing in the best and brightest researchers in Canada. CGCF has a history of funding genetic research through is research grant program. In 2010, CGCF introduced a new research grant opportunity for post-doctoral researchers – the Champions of Genetics Programme. This programme was designed with multiple benefits, in that it celebrates high-caliber scientific excellence of both highly respected senior scientists, and the rising scientific stars that they have mentored.

•           We provide high school students with an amazing hands-on opportunity to discover the world of genetic research in some of the top labs in the country through our Gene Researcher for a Week program

•           We encourage and enable university students to pursue both an MD and a PhD degree in the field of genetics through our Scriver MD/PhD Studentships. Physicians who understand research and researchers who manage patients play a valuable role in the pursuit of cures and treatments for disease.
