Medical research saved the life of Ewan Johnston, and now his parents, Dal Alumni Drs. Mark Johnston and Ann Swain, are matching every donation made to the 2023 Molly Appeal campaign, up to $50,000.

This means that your gift today will double the impact to medical research at Dalhousie’s Faculty of Medicine. Mark and Ann hope their family’s gift will encourage others to donate, so that together their efforts can change and save more lives.

Read Ewan's Story and stand with his family by supporting Medical Research at the Faculty of Medicine.

REMEDY Magazine

At Dalhousie, we believe in driving excellence in medical research and education, and that means setting up our research teams for success, in and out of the lab and classroom. Part of that is helping them to share the work they are doing with you, and with our community. You may recall receiving the Philanthropist Magazine in the mail in past years, a publication filled with stories of research excellence happening at Dalhousie’s Faculty of Medicine. Today, we’re excited for you to see our brand new magazine, REMEDY. It has a new name and a new look, but like our team, it carries forward the passion, energy, and impact that it always has.

We hope you enjoy the stories of research and education excellence, and share them with your friends, families, neighbours, and colleagues. After all, none of it would be possible without you.

A strengthened partnership in health research

For more than 40 years, Dalhousie and DMRF have shared a vision for health research in the Maritimes: to drive excellence in health and health care through world-class research and education.

To amplify their individual efforts, they formally joined forces in October 2022. This partnership has seen the two entities unite to create an expert team with a vision to collaboratively raise even more funds for health research and continue to support research excellence and promote healthy, strong communities.
