Our Mission Statement

The Canadian Epigenetics, Environment and Health Research Consortium (CEEHRC) Network is a network run by epigenetic researchers from across Canada, funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research as part of the overall CEEHRC initiative.

Our mission is to develop and strengthen collaborations between Canadian scientists to advance basic epigenetic research and to translate new discoveries in the field of epigenetics into improved human health. We also aim to encourage young scientists and broaden the understanding of epigenetics amongst the general public by providing outreach and training resources.

To accomplish this, we aim to:

  • Connect epigenetics researchers, remotely and in-person at our annual meeting, and to expand their reach to the broader scientific and health research communities in Canada and beyond
  • Facilitate access and dissemination of epigenomics data to researchers across Canada
  • Produce and curate epigenomics tools, software and protocols
  • Curate Canadian jobs, training opportunities and events
  • Enhance the understanding of the importance of epigenetics in the general population using educational content produced by CEEHRC epigenetics experts
