what we are working on


The Canadian Centre for Computational Genomics (C3G) is a geographically distributed innovation program that provides bioinformatics analysis and high-performance computing services for the life science research community across Canada. Toronto node consists of team members from UHN and SickKids, and the Montreal node is based at McGill University.


Care4Rare is a large pan-Canadian collaborative network of clinicians, bioinformaticians, scientists, and researchers focused on improving the care of rare disease patients in Canada and around the world. Care4Rare includes over 20 academic sites across the country and is recognized internationally as a pioneer in genomics and personalized medicine.

The Digital Health and Discovery Platform (DHDP)

The DHDP intends to connect patient datasets across Canadian hospitals and to help users improve health outcomes by applying big data and artificial intelligence approaches to advance precision medicine. The DHDP will be built by leveraging a collaborative, Pan-Canadian network of key experts and partners to deliver a cutting-edge technological data-sharing infrastructure coupled with a world-leading policy framework. This will elicit a ‘network effect’ to accelerate innovation and commercialize new products and services that contribute to Canada’s knowledge economy.


Genomics4RD is an initiative of the Care4Rare Canada Consortium. It is the first Canada-wide data lake for rare disease research, providing a centralized repository of structured and unstructured data from 5,000+ participants. 

Marathon of Hope Cancer Centres Network (MoHCCN)

The Marathon of Hope Cancer Centres Network (MoHCCN) initiative is a long-standing vision of the Terry Fox Research Institute. To help advance precision medicine in oncology, the University Health Network is leading platform development to connect researchers across the country to help close the gap between research and patient care.
