personalized health care business proposal
Launched in 2011, the Personalized Health Care Initiative sparked much interest in the community. The energy of the mobilization around Montréal InVivo managed to convince the Government of Quebec to add a sixth mobilizing project to the Quebec research and innovation strategy. Following a contest organized by the Ministry of Economy, the Personalized Medicine Partnership for Cancer, a $20.5-million project (public-private), supported 40 jobs in 14 SMEs and six research centres. The Quebec Network for Personalized Health Care, a not-for-profit organization, also emerged from the initiative of Montréal InVivo. It is responsible for ensuring the visibility of the niche of excellence and organizes most notably the International Congress on Personalized Health Care.
