Since 2000, Québec and Canada have made significant R&D investments in the area of genomics, with a particular focus on technological platform development and genetics. To justify these and future major investments in genomic research, clear benefits of genomic technologies to society must be demonstrated. The goals of the study are to provide methodology to evaluate potential socio-economic impact of personalized medicines, to demonstrate it on two applications of genomic technology and to summarize obstacles to realize the potential socio-economic benefits of genomic research. The following report is the presentation of the project made at Genome Quebec. Depuis 2000, le Québec et le Canada ont investi considérablement en R.-D. dans le domaine de la génomique, en mettant l'accent sur l'élaboration d'une plateforme technologique et sur la génétique. Afin de justifier ces investissements et d'autres à venir dans la recherche génomique, les bénéfices évidents des technologies génomiques pour la société doivent être démontrés. Les objectifs de notre étude est d'offrir une méthodologie pour évaluer l'impact socioéconomique potentiel de la médecine personnalisée, d'en démontrer la méthodologie à l'aide de deux applications de la technologie génomique et d'en résumer les obstacles à la réalisation des bénéfices liés à la recherche génomique. Le rapport qui suit est la reproduction de la présentation du projet qui a été faite à Génome Québec.
