The Government of Quebec and the New Canadian Government Invest in the Creation of an International Biobank
Date:8/21/2007

g, improve its international standing. Canada Economic Development's financial participation in an initiative that holds so much promise for the economic diversification of the region is entirely consistent with the new science and technology strategy Canada has put in place to, among other things, strengthen the ties between entrepreneurs and scientists. It is a good illustration of the determination of Canada's new government to adopt principles and policies that will set the stage for economic growth and new business opportunities," stated Minister Blackburn.

Minister Bachand sees this new research infrastructure as the realization of an innovative resource solidly integrated in an international genome research project. "This new scientific infrastructure is strategic for Quebec. It demonstrates our government's desire to support innovation and excellence anywhere it develops. With this investment, we are laying a foundation on the genomics expertise developed here, in the Saguenay-Lac Saint-Jean, to build the innovative, prosperous Quebec we want for future generations."

The Biobank is Genome Quebec's fourth platform. "This is part of the implementation of our business model, which aims to group advanced equipment financed by major projects in genomics and increase its availability to academic and private sector scientists. This way, using the expertise developed in the Saguenay-Lac Saint-Jean, we will help create a formative research tool in Quebec that, thanks to the ties created through CARTaGENE and the P3G international consortium, will become part of a network of major international biobanks that contribute to significant advances in science," said Mr. Paul L'Archeveque, President and CEO of Genome Quebec.

Dr. Richard Lemieux, Executive Director of the Centre de sante et de services sociaux de Chicoutimi, was pleased with the announcement and highlighted the scientific contribution of Dr. Daniel Gaudet's team in the design of the Biobank.
