Officially opened in 2011, the Life Sciences Research Institute (LSRI) is a bright, open and spacious new building in the heart of Halifax’s academic health sciences network—next door to Dalhousie Medical School and across the street from the QEII Health Sciences Centre and IWK Health Centre on University Avenue.

The LSRI is home to the Brain Repair Centre’s administrative offices, state-of-the-art core facilities, and the well-equipped labs of a number of neuroscience researchers, including those who form the scientific core of the Atlantic Mobility Action Project. Other scientific organizations who share the space include Genome Atlantic and the Canadian Aerosol Research Network.

The LSRI is also home to technology transfer and industry-oriented organizations that help researchers develop their discoveries into workable innovations. These include:


The LSRI is a joint initiative of Dalhousie University, the Capital District Health Authority, IWK Health Centre and other partners. The Government of Canada has designated the LSRI as a centre of excellence for commercialization and research. The building features the latest in green materials and ultra-efficient lighting, heating and ventilation systems.
