The Nunavut Research Institute (NRI) is your gateway to scientific research in Nunavut! NRI is responsible for licensing research in the health, natural, and social science disciplines, as required under Nunavut's Scientists Act. We act as a clearinghouse for information on research in Nunavut and we provide mentorship, guidance, and support to scientists working throughout the territory. NRI ensures that Nunavummiut are consulted and engaged in research, and we help to broker research partnerships that address needs and concerns of Nunavummiut. As the science division of Nunavut Arctic College, we provide opportunities for Nunavummiut to gain hands-on skills, training and experience in applied science and research.
The NRI has teamed up with Nunavut Tunngavik Incorporated to establish Nunavut's first ever laboratory diagnostic service for trichinella parasites in walrus. Learn more on our programs and partnerships page.
