NMIN Strategic Initiatives Funding
Open, ongoing call for applications
NMIN’s Strategic Initiatives (SI) program supports rapid responses to just-in-time research, commercialization or knowledge mobilization opportunities.
Budgets may be requested to a maximum of $50,000. Projects must be achievable within a one-year timeframe and be aligned with NMIN’s mission and vision.

Video recordings from NMIN webinars and other events
In addition to the presentations below, which have a commercialization skills-enhancing or training focus, additional recordings of research/scientific presentations are also available for the following past NMIN events: Vancouver Nanomedicine Day 2020; IDT Symposium 2020 (Developing Genetic Drugs using nucleic acids & LNPs); rhAmpSeq™ CRISPR: Multiplexed Amplicon Sequencing & Analysis; Recent Advancements in CRISPR Reagents
All NMIN videos can also be viewed on NMIN’s YouTube channel.
Intellectual Property (IP) Management tools
These three interactive tools take you step-by-step through the processes of: deciding if you are in a position to pursue a patent for your IP; determining if you have Freedom to Operate (FTO); and filing a patent—three fundamental components of IP management.
