Enabling Canadians to lead the world in the discovery and advancement of cures for inherited diseases
The Canadian Gene Cure Foundation (CGCF) supports excellence in the research of human inherited diseases.
Our four key programs are designed to build a sustainable, cooperative research community in Canada.
In November 2013, the Canadian College of Medical Geneticists voted unanimously for the Canadian Gene Cure Foundation to be the Charity of Choice for the association. The College is made up of individuals who have a doctoral degree and training in medical genetics.
“This is a very natural fit for both organizations,” said Sandra MacPherson, Board Chair of the Canadian Gene Cure Foundation. “We are honoured to have the support of the CCMG for the work we do providing research grants, scholarships and educational opportunities to medical genetics researchers. The programmes we coordinate all ultimately aim to bring improvements in patient care by enabling Canadian scientists to continue to pursue world-class research in medical genetics.”
