The New Brunswick Health Research Foundation (NBHRF) was created in July 2008 with a mandate to co-ordinate, support and promote health research in New Brunswick. The NBHRF is an independent organization governed by a board of directors comprised of key stakeholders from the health research community in New Brunswick.

We develop and provide research funding that allow us to invest in health research that is relevant to improving the health of New Brunswick people. Building capacity and competitiveness means we are able to respond to local health challenges by attracting and retaining those with the knowledge and expertise to find local solutions that work for the people of New Brunswick.
