A network of research experts from the academic, private and public sectors has received renewed federal funding to carry out its battle against allergic and related immune diseases. The Honourable Gary Goodyear, Minister of State for Science and Technology, today announced $36.5 million to support the AllerGen Network of Centres of Excellence for the coming seven years.

"How do we improve lives, create jobs and economic growth through Science and Technology? Innovation. We are investing in Networks of Centres of Excellence to improve the quality of life of Canadians, strengthen the economy and support job creation," said Minister Goodyear. "Because, as Canadians, we are not unique in the problems we face, we can sell our solutions to the world. AllerGen's research will help improve the lives of millions of Canadians suffering from the complications of allergic diseases through innovation."

The network's recent advances include improving asthma diagnosis and predicting attacks, unravelling the genetic connections to allergies and asthma, and revealing the impact of socio-economic factors on the development of the immune system.
