Headstart on research at NRC-INH

Dr. Michael Mayne's

"Although the INH building will not be completed until early 2006, our research programs are well underway. I am fortunate that my previous employer (University of Manitoba and the St. Boniface Hospital Research Centre) enabled me to keep my research program operational in Winnipeg while we make significant administrative advances here in Charlottetown.

It is important to be able to continue our research while we wait for the building to be finished. Our friends at the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) in Charlottetown have been kind enough to take us in (effective this summer) and thus we will have access to excellent lab facilities immediately."

Excerpt from Dr. Michael Mayne's blog, 2004-05-26

NRC's newest research institute recently launched its new Web site. The new NRC Institute for Nutrisciences and Health (NRC-INH) Web site contains a wealth of information about activities at the institute.

Based in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, NRC-INH began operations in 2003. The institute resulted from extensive community and industry consultations and technology roadmapping, critical components in NRC's community innovation approach, a process known as cluster building. Through NRC-INH and partners from the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, the Province of PEI and the University of PEI, NRC will help the community extend and develop existing expertise and capacity in the area of bioresources.
