Funders & Collaborators

The Collaboratory is made up of national and international leaders in genomics, computer science, bioinformatics, medical law and ethics, patient privacy protection, and cancer biology.


The Cancer Genome Collaboratory is co-funded by the National Science and Engineering Research Council, Genome Canada, the Canada Foundation for Innovation, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, and the Ontario Ministry of Research, Innovation and Science.


  • Bionimbus Protected Data Cloud at University of Chicago

    Bionimbus PDC is part of the Open Cloud Consortium, an academic collaboration to develop standards for scientific cloud computing. PDC holds the portion of the ICGC dataset generated by USA-based genome centres and since mid-2013 has provided cloud-based access to these datasets for authorized researchers.

  • Global Alliance for Genomics & Health

    The work of the Global Alliance is critical to realizing the potential of recent technological advances that make possible the large-scale collection of data on genome sequencing and clinical outcomes. GA4GH is working to alter the current reality where data are kept and studied in silos, and tools and methods are non-standardized and incompatible.
