Alberta Cancer Foundation - Cancer Detection Challenge

This Challenge seeks to identify and support the development of cancer detection and diagnosis technologies that will enhance outcomes for patients with cancer while simultaneously driving the growth of a local Alberta diagnostics company.

This opportunity presents a valuable resource for the commercialization of an Alberta-owned innovation in the health-space. The partnerships developed and resources (in-kind and cash) committed will provide the collaborative environment needed for value creation. The total funding available for projects supported through this Challenge is up to $2.0MM, subject to the discretion of Alberta Innovates, Alberta Cancer Foundation, DynaLIFEDx, and the availability of funds. SMEs will be required to contribute resources (cash and in-kind) to any project that is selected through this process.
