Programs and Services
The NSHRF supports the health research enterprise to the benefit of Nova Scotia through a variety of Programs and Services. The NSHRF defines health broadly and funds research and research related activity on topics ranging from basic science to population health. Research and projects funded by the NSHRF must demonstrate relevance to our mandate, which can be accomplished through links to our health research priorities.
