UBC Health facilitates research collaboration across disciplines to tackle some of our most pressing health challenges.

As these challenges grow increasingly complex, extending and improving the lives of Canadians will require an interdisciplinary and cross-cutting approach to research that goes beyond traditional departmental and institutional boundaries.

Currently, UBC Health provides support for catalyzing and advancing collaborative research initiatives in several important areas:

  • Mental Health & Aging
  • Indigenous Health
  • Diabetes, Obesity, Nutrition & Exercise

As some of the brightest minds across the UBC research ecosystem come together, they will be able to closely collaborate towards innovative and groundbreaking solutions to these complex issues.
