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

He also noted that this new purpose strengthens the position of the CSSS de Chicoutimi as a university centre affiliated with the Universite de Montreal and as a research centre for genomics and biomedical innovation. "This niche of excellence is a jewel in the crown of our institution, and the region's entire population will benefit from the research activities led in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean."

The Associate Vice-Rector of Research at the Universite de Montreal, Mr. Real Lallier, underscored the contribution of Dr. Daniel Gaudet to the advancement of research in the field of genetics and "omic sciences" of population genomics. "The exceptional work done by Dr. Gaudet's team enables scientists from Montreal, the Saguenay-Lac Saint-Jean and the world to network. More specifically, their efforts help further our knowledge of the role of genetic determinants and new technologies, and aim to validate and transfer this knowledge to improve health and prevent disease."

The scientific director of CARTaGENE, Dr. Claude Laberge, mentioned the close collaboration between CARTaGENE and the Biobank and added that this technologically advanced infrastructure was an outcome of the university research link shared with the CSSS de Chicoutimi. "The Biobank is an indispensable component of CARTaGENE, as it will hold the biological samples of all participants in the CARTaGENE project. The Biobank will also become a precursor for the set-up and testing of norms for large biobanks."

San Diego-based firm GenVault was chosen to implement the system and technology for archiving and retrieving samples. "GenVault is pleased to be part of this pioneering scientific research endeavour, for the benefit of the study of Canadian population genomics, and ultimately, for the benefit of healthcare in Quebec, Canada, and around the world," said Mr. David Wellis, Ph.D., President and CEO of GenVault.

The mission of Genome Quebec is to mobilize academic and industrial sector
