Welcome to the
Canadian National Proteomics Network

Fostering a leading research community

Much of Canada’s economic future is in it’s technology base, fueled by research discoveries in agriculture, forestry, fisheries, human health and the environment. Proteomics is a key research area required for Canada to realize the potential of its economy, which is increasingly drawing upon the life sciences.

Recognizing the social and economic benefits to be realized, Canada’s leading research institutions have responded in several ways, including a commitment to develop research and training programs in proteomics. Significant investments in personnel and equipment already have been made. However, for proteomics research in Canada to reach its potential for international leadership, an integrated strategy and an effective communications infrastructure are needed to promote the development of a cooperative national research network.
