Canadian Glycomics Network (GlycoNet) - Strategic Initiatives 2022–2023

The Canadian Glycomics Network (GlycoNet) is a Network of Centres of Excellence that focuses on the role of glycans (carbohydrates) in health. Areas of focus are neurodegenerative diseases, infectious diseases, chronic diseases, in particular diabetes & obesity, genetic diseases involving errors in glycan metabolism, and cancer.

Projects should:

• Be aligned with one of the GlycoNet research themes (see glyconet.ca).

• Must address partner’s research needs or challenges.

• Have an identified partner that could take over the outcomes of the research 

AVAILABLE FUNDING

GlycoNet has set aside up to $600,000 for Strategic Initiatives in 2020–2021. Proposals may request up to $150,000 in funding.

Partner matching of 1:1 is required, greater matching will be viewed more favorably by the committee. 50% of matching must be cash (for a $150,000 request, matching should be at least $75,000 cash and $75,000 in-kind). Partner funding must be NCE eligible; in particular, other Canadian Federal funding is ineligible for matching.
