Welcome to Research at Dalhousie Medicine New Brunswick

Dalhousie Medicine New Brunswick (DMNB) is home to medical and healthcare-related research for Dalhousie University Faculty of Medicine members in New Brunswick, founded on laboratory-based research teams, health services researchers, clinical research teams, and medical education research in collaboration with the Research in Medicine (RIM) program. The health research teams are currently under the direction of Dr. Paul Atkinson, Assistant Dean of Research at DMNB.

Our state-of-the-art biomedical research facility opened in 2013 to support research undertaken by clinical faculty members and educators in New Brunswick. Much of our success has been made possible thanks to the strong partnerships between our Research Council, the University of New Brunswick, and Horizon Health Network.
