The JCB is a multidisciplinary effort to provide leadership in bioethics research, education, and clinical activities. One of its key research areas is genomics and global health, and the JCB is involved in a number of projects aimed at averting the formation of a "genomic divide" - akin to the "digital divide" - between the developed and developing world. Its projects are supported through three grants: The Program in Applied Ethics and Biotechnology, the Canadian Program in Genomics and Global Health, and Bridging the Emerging Genomics Divide.
