Research Centres and Institutes

Research at McMaster is undertaken across all of our six Faculties and within our affiliated hospitals. Whether it's one of our institutes or centers, a lab or a research facility, we have more than 100 research units pursuing new opportunities in strategic areas where we have already made significant strides. Many of these research units are engaging with industry to move research out of the lab and into communities where it can change lives for the better.
