Research Facility



Dalhousie Medicine New Brunswick
Dalhousie University
Saint John
New Brunswick (NB)

Dalhousie Medicine New Brunswick (DMNB) is home to a state-of-the-art biomedical research laboratory that supports the Research Chair in Occupational Medicine and three cardiovascular researchers.

The research program at DMNB was created through the support and dedication of the volunteers that successfully raised the $15 million funding necessary to establish the endowed Research Chair in Occupational Medicine, the biomedical research lab and the medical student research fund.

Research has an important role to play in the training of physicians as it has a positive impact on patients through the development of new methods and treatments.
