The Million Dollar Scientists
Two Mount Sinai Hospital researchers are among the winners of a prestigious national award supporting world-leading genomics research in Canada to help scientists further our understanding and treatment of cancers and rare diseases. The two grants of $1 million each from the Government of Canada, through Genome Canada and the Ontario Genomics Institute, will support Mount Sinai genomics research in developing new bioinformatic tools.
One of the grants awarded will support Dr. Anne-Claude Gingras, Senior Investigator at Mount Sinai’s Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute, who was awarded $1 million over two years to further expand the innovative software that she and her team developed. The advanced software suite, called ProHits, tracks, analyzes and reports data generated by a tool called mass spectrometry, which identifies how proteins work in relation to cancer and other diseases.
