UBC receives $11.1M in federal funding for biotechnology projects

The University of British Columbia will receive $11.1M in funding from the Government of Canada’s Pacific Economic Development Agency of Canada to conduct two major research projects focused on biotechnology. The first project will receive $3.5M to improve the delivery techniques for mRNA vaccines and nanomedicines, while the second project will receive over $7.68M to study and predict potential COVID-19 variants and create mRNA vaccines for them. “With the generous support of the Government of Canada through PacifiCan announced today, our researchers will be able to help development treatments for new COVID-19 variants and improve the efficacy of mRNA vaccines and other therapeutics for a wide range of diseases,” said UBC President Santa J Ono.
