Current Funding


Farncombe Family Chair in Phage Biology (2017-2020)


In addition to supporting Dr. Hynes's salary, generous donations by the Farncombe Family to the Institute have provided the group with a large operating grant to kick-start its research. 


NSERC Discovery Grant “Temperate Phages Manipulate Bacterial Populations” (2018-2023)


The study of phages is often centered on virulent (strictly lytic) bacteriophages. The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) supports a research program focused on fundamental aspects of the biology of temperate phages.
