Saturday, March 18, 2017
Natural Products Canada (NPC) is one of two new networks joining the Centres of Excellence for Commercialization and Research (CECR) program awarded for R&D in the field of natural products. It will receive $14 million over five years to establish four nodes in a national network for commercializing natural products for human and animal health, agricultural products and industrial chemicals. Spearheaded by the PEI BioAlliance, the Charlottetown-based NPC is the first CECR to be headquartered in the Maritimes. An article in the March 2017 Issue of Research Money looks at the success factors and sustainability.
