Pulse is the Health Innovation Sandbox at Dalhousie University. Pulse, funded by the Ministry of Labour and Advanced Education, aims to promote innovation and entrepreneurship in health, technology, and the life sciences. This is accomplished by providing resources, programming, events, and seminars to students, staff, and faculty. Pulse partners with established institutes and organizations both within Dalhousie and in the greater Halifax/Nova Scotia community to encourage innovation. Pulse's main focus areas are mental health, continuing care, and acute care.
