National Research Council Institute for Marine Biosciences

edit this listing
The National Research Council Institute for Marine Biosciences (NRC-IMB) is one of 19 institutes of the National Research Council (NRC), the Government of Canada's premier research and development organization. Our unique, multidisciplinary approach is focused on marine bioproducts for the discovery, characterization and development of bioactives, natural toxins, functional foods and nutraceuticals. This research is undertaken in two core program areas: Functional Genomics, and Marine Bioactives as well as a Certified Reference Materials Program. NRC-IMB also leads the algal biofuels project within the National Bioproducts Program. This project is dedicated to growing, processing and testing microscopic algae for use as biofuel, and to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and water pollution. Our comprehensive suite of life sciences laboratories, coupled with our Marine research Station (MRS) on the nearby Atlantic coast, makes NRC-IMB one of the world's most versatile marine research facilities. As such, we serve a pivotal role in the dynamic and growing life sciences cluster in Nova Scotia. Our partners include organizations and individuals from industry, academia, and domestic and foreign government agencies.
