McMaster recognizes that access to research platforms with specialized equipment and technical expertise is essential to advancing basic research and competing on the world’s research stage. Across our campus—from department-based laboratories to suites of equipment housed within centres and institutes to state-of-the-art national research facilities— our platforms provide our researchers the cutting-edge methods and tools required to impact their fields of research, and allow our private sector, government and community partners access to some of the country’s top talent.
If you’re an external visitor, we invite you to browse our research centres and institutes database to find the expertise and gain access to the requisite equipment that will help to advance your organization’s mission.
If you’re a member of McMaster’s research enterprise interested in learning more about the governance related to the creation of centres, institutes, facilities and platforms, please see the following:
