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 people in British Columbia requires an interdisciplinary approach to research that goes beyond traditional departmental and institutional boundaries.

We provide support for catalyzing and advancing collaborative research initiatives through the Health Innovation Funding Investment (HIFI) Awards. 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 complex issues.
