Our home is Manitoba but our impact is global.

We have a history of excellence in Discovery Science and Applied Science, which is exemplified by our Canada Research Chairs, and Manitoba Health Chairs – the country’s top experts and internationally recognized members in their fields. Our Distinguished professors are award-winning scientists, who have received: NSERC Awards, Brockhouse Canada Prizes, Ernest C.
