Brain Body Institute


The Brain-Body Institute (BBI) is a joint research initiative between St. Joseph's Healthcare, Hamilton, and McMaster University and was created to advance the understanding of relations between the brain, the nervous system and bodily disorders. Clinical and basic scientists in this multidisciplinary Institute study the interaction and impact of environmental factors, including stress, early life experiences and early microbial exposure on the brain and nervous system.
