SFU team receives funding to expand system of worldwide health research databases
The Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR) Tuesday announced $800,000 in funding to expand Simon Fraser University’s iReceptor initiative.
It is expected that this funding will be part of a Canada/EU flagship project totaling more than $12-million Canadian over four years.
iReceptor is a newly developed platform for managing massive repositories of worldwide distributed data that researchers can securely access in their quest to develop new therapies for autoimmune and infectious diseases, and cancer.
