Cardiovascular Research Endowment Fund

With your help, Heart & Stroke New Brunswick can ensure researchers throughout the province have access to sustainable funding. 

Recognizing the integral role research plays within our healthcare system, the Heart & Stroke Foundation of New Brunswick (HSFNB) established the Cardiovascular Research Endowment Fund in 2017. The endowment is focused on providing sustainable ongoing funding, to facilitate capacity building for those conducting cardiovascular research within New Brunswick.

In 2020, HSFNB partnered with the New Brunswick Health Research Foundation (NBHRF) to equally co-fund two projects annually, in the amount of $40,000 each.

By investing in health research, we are helping attract and retain high caliber physicians and scientists, creating better health outcomes by employing the latest research results in clinical practice, while contributing to economic growth through well-paid jobs and infrastructure.
