Biosciences Research Infrastructure Fund

The Biosciences Research Infrastructure Fund supports the bioscience infrastructure needs of postsecondary institutions and research hospitals by providing high-performance tools, innovative research spaces and biocontainment facilities.

Support from this fund is expected to advance the Government of Canada’s Biomanufacturing and Life Sciences Strategy by strengthening the research capacity of Canada’s biomanufacturing and life sciences ecosystem.

The competition for biocontainment and large-animal facilities  is currently in progress
Status: The deadline to submit notices of intent is October 18, 2021
Key document: Call for proposals for biocontainment and large-animal facilities 

We are also developing a second, wider-ranging competition of the Biosciences Research Infrastructure Fund in collaboration with the tri-agency’s Canada Biomedical Research Fund and will share more information as it becomes available.
