The Ultimate in Scientific Collaboration
If you’ve ever spent time looking for a specialized piece of research equipment or for a lab that has an expertise in a particular technique, you are going to love the new online tool recently launched by the Canadian Foundation for Innovation (CFI). The CFI Research Facilities Navigator is a searchable online directory of CFI-funded research facilities across Canada and the expertise they offer. All labs and facilities listed in this directory have received funding from the CFI or use CFI-funded infrastructure and are open to working with business. There are currently over 360 laboratories from 63 universities and research hospitals across Canada listed in the Navigator.
On the other hand, if you are an academic lab with CFI funding, the Navigator serves as a perfect place for you to advertize your lab’s marketable skills and to earn money by selling your services to the business community.
The CFI Navigator has placed the power of collaboration into the hands of academic laboratories and small biotechnology companies and is the perfect tool for facilitation a bench to bedside research strategy.
