CEEHRC Funding

The Canadian Epigenetics, Environment and Health Research Consortium (CEEHRC) plans to launch a number of dedicated epigenetics funding opportunities over the next several years. Please refer back to this page for updates.







  • Fellowship: Fall 2011 – Epigenetics Priority Area
    As part of their commitment to the Canadian Epigenetics, Environment and Health Research Consortium (CEEHRC), the CIHR Institute of Neurosciences, Mental Health and Addiction (INMHA) has launched a Priority Announcement in Epigenetics on the Fall 2011 Fellowship funding opportunity. CIHR-INMHA will provide funding for an application that supports research in epigenetics relevant to human health and disease.
  • CEEHRC Epigenomics Platform
    This Funding Opportunity is to support the development of a National Epigenomics Platform, comprised of several Epigenomic Mapping Centres (EMCs) and one Epigenomic Data Coordination Centre (EDCC). It is expected that these centres will form key nodes of the larger CEEHRC initiative.
    One of the main goals of the CEEHRC Epigenomic Mapping Centres (EMCs) is the systematic high-resolution mapping of human epigenomic marks in appropriate cell/tissue types.
    This Funding Opportunity targets existing genome sequencing centres across Canada, where there is already a critical mass of genomic research expertise and platforms for genomic mapping available for direct application to epigenomics research.
  • CEEHRC Catalyst Grant
    This Funding Opportunity is to support the development of innovative new technologies and approaches that have the potential to transform how epigenetics research is performed. This may include small scale projects for the identification and validation of new epigenetic marks and related compounds (e.g. antibodies, chemical markers, etc), the development of appropriate tools to discover and monitor epigenetic changes, and research into the mechanisms underlying the heritability of epigenetic marks.
    It is expected that the outcomes of this Catalyst Grant Funding Opportunity will inform other activities of the CEEHRC initiative, including potentially the Epigenomic Mapping Centres (EMCs) funded through the CEEHRC Epigenomics Platform.
