A  new means of advancing research and development in Atlantic Canada made its debut at Dalhousie’s Life Sciences Research Institute earlier this month.

Known as AFRED (Atlantic Facilities and Research Equipment Database), this open-access database connects researchers in the region to the equipment and facilities they need to answer their foremost questions — whether they’re trying to understand the brain, build a silent windmill or craft the perfect cupcake.
