Our innovative research is transforming healthcare challenges and solving real-world problems. Projects include a prosthetic coating that improves healing and microchips that investigate bacterial resistance. Take a look at the groundbreaking discoveries being made when engineering meets health sciences.
A donation of more than $32 million Cdn from Marnix Heersink, an Alabama physician and entrepreneur, will boost McMaster University’s role as a hub for biomedical innovation, entrepreneurship and global health.
A new company spawned by McMaster University innovation has received a grant to develop a new technology for keeping liquid mRNA vaccines safe and viable without the deep-freeze that is necessary today for storing and transporting such vaccines.
The research is part of an ongoing, broader effort to establish McMaster as a centre for the development of real-time sensors, pathogen-repellent materials and other products that improve food safety.
