We mention the signature of a five year collaborative agreement between Université de Moncton and Shannex Inc. for “training on aging” ( Université de Moncton, September 28, 2017 ). The local chapter of PCC raised $38,000 in Saint John area for prostate cancer ( The Telegraph Journal, September 26, 2017 ). Dr. Anil Adisesh was showcased on an upcoming project on prostate cancer prevention: PATH ( The Telegraph Journal, September 29, 2017 ). Also in the news, Dr. Pakzad of the Université de Moncton discussed Alzheimer’s research in New Brunswick with Radio Canada ( Radio-Canada, September 21, 2017) . As the consultation of the stakeholders of the New Brunswick Health Research Enterprise continues in preparation to set the stage for the next cycle of the strategic plan, “ the New Brunswick we want” - relative to health research, and innovation in health, being agile and competitive and sustainable - in 2020, 2025, 2030, must be debated today. In closing, I hope to see you all at the NBHRF annual conference Nov. 1-2 in Moncton to continue this discussion. Regards Dr Bruno Battistini
