Research and Innovation

In a rapidly changing global community, innovation becomes more than just a catchword, it becomes a necessity. At the University of Manitoba, our innovative research has led to discoveries and advances that have changed the lives of people around the world. And we’ve been doing it for more than a century.

From the development of canola to significant advances in functional foods and nutraceuticals. From the elimination of Rh disease in newborns to landmark discoveries in the fight against HIV/AIDS. From the microscopic world of nanotechnology to the global impact of climate change, the University of Manitoba continues to be at the forefront of innovation.

Of course, research requires people, and that’s where the University of Manitoba truly shines. Our researchers are not only leaders in their fields, they are also educators and mentors who bring their pioneering research into the university’s classrooms as it happens.
