Biosciences Research Infrastructure Fund

The Biosciences Research Infrastructure Fund (BRIF) supports the bioscience infrastructure needs of postsecondary institutions and research hospitals by providing high-performance tools, innovative research spaces and biocontainment facilities.

Support from this fund is expected to advance the Government of Canada’s Biomanufacturing and Life Sciences Strategy by strengthening the research capacity of Canada’s biomanufacturing and life sciences ecosystem.
