Bringing together biomedical sciences, social sciences and business education for an interdisciplinary approach to undergraduate and graduate health education.
Five research clusters will be led by world-class experts in Digital Health, Aging in the Community, Public Health and Health Policy, Management in Health and Child Rights for Child Health.
Our Integrated Health Initiative’s Innovation Hub will enable students, faculty and staff to develop bold, far reaching, innovations, inventions and ground-breaking solutions that address health and social challenges and reform health care for the people of New Brunswick and Canada.
The innovations, inventions and solutions developed in UNB’s Innovation Hub will come to life in partnership with the businesses and enterprises located in the Health and Technology District Saint John. Internships, co-op placements and employment opportunities will ignite new ventures in health and social innovation.
Complementary to the Health and Technology District, UNB will construct new, purpose-built, state-of-the-art space for its education, research programs and innovation activities.
