The Canadian Centre for Agri-Food Research in Health and Medicine (CCARM) is dedicated to investigating and understanding the potential health-related benefits found in nutraceuticals, functional foods, and natural health products (health food).

CCARM's vision is to add value to agricultural commodities and finished products through innovative functional food and nutraceuticals research. The CCARM research program aims to translate positive results from basic laboratory science into new and safe dietary supplements and food products that will directly impact the health of the Canadian public. From laboratory to in human research, CCARM conducts clinical research studies (clinical trials) of functional and health food products and nutraceuticals identified by our laboratories as having potential beneficial effects on diseases that are of clinical and financial significance to Canadians. Diseases targeted thus far include, immune disorders, diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular and vascular diseases.

CCARM represents an ongoing unique partnership between St-Boniface Hospital, the University of Manitoba, and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, and is located within the St-Boniface Hospital Albrechtsen Research Centre and the I.H. Asper Clinical Research Institute.

Other partnerships and collaborations include the Manitoba Agri-Health Research Network (MAHRN); Granotec, a leading cereal technology company in Latin America; and the Food Development Centre.
