Additional documentation to support the submission:
As the first university established in western Canada, the University of Manitoba has been at the centre of research in Manitoba for more than a century. From the development of canola and advances in wireless communication, to the prevention of Rh disease of the newborn and breakthrough discoveries concerning the transmission of HIV/AIDS, our researchers have made contributions that have had a global impact.
Today, our faculty and students continue to earn international acclaim in fields as diverse as infectious diseases, Canadian history, materials science, civil infrastructure, population and community health, sustainable agriculture and northern research, to name just a few. More than ever before, our researchers are collaborating beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries, sharing their expertise, experience and passion for discovery.
The University of Manitoba is the only research-intensive university in the province, and the vast majority of research undertaken in Manitoba takes place on one of our campuses or at our research stations. As the hub for graduate education in the province, we are also the major contributor to the supply of highly qualified personnel that are increasingly in demand by business, industry and government.
