Johnson & Johnson Alberta Health Innovation Partnership

Supporting Innovation and advancement of patient and health system outcomes.

The Johnson & Johnson Alberta Health Innovation Partnership (JAHIP) is a $3.675 million collaboration between Alberta Economic Development and Trade, Janssen Inc. (part of the Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson) and the University Hospital Foundation.

The primary goal of JAHIP is to support innovation and advancement of patient and health system outcomes in specific life sciences areas.

As a Canadian leader in health care philanthropy, focused on advancing the health of Albertans by connecting generosity to support innovation and excellence, the University Hospital Foundation has been an essential partner in the creation of the JAHIP fund and bringing together the medical, clinical and scientific expertise from the University of Alberta and across the province.
