What's New

As you may know, NSHRF has been busy preparing for the transition to Research Nova Scotia (RNS). The transition has been scheduled for completion by the end of this fiscal year, March 31, 2019. We’ve been working closely with government to ensure that support for the health research community is not interrupted during the changeover to RNS. It is our pleasure to inform you that all NSHRF programs and services will remain business as usual for the 2019/2020 fiscal year, under the new organization.

NSHRF would like to announce that George Collier is leaving his position as Manager, REAL Knowledge Program, effective August 3, 2018. His strong leadership skills and sense of humor will be missed. However, it is with pride that we share George has been offered, and accepted, a position with the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), as Senior Partnership Lead. 

Over the past eight years, George has spearheaded the development of NSHRF’s REAL Knowledge Program. His pragmatic approach and reputation for excellence has made him a valuable asset to both his colleagues and clients.

Following George’s departure, NSHRF CEO, Krista Connell, will assume responsibility for the REAL Knowledge Program.

It is with the warmest personal regards that we wish George success as he begins his new position with CIHR. We know he will tackle this new venture with the same passion and dedication he displayed as part of our team.
