Chanchlani Research Centre


The Chanchlani Research Centre is comprised of a vibrant group of researchers who investigate the intersection of genomics and culture on human health. Thanks to a generous donation by the Chanchlani family and with support from McMaster University, we have the infrastructure both human and physical to undertake large scale genomics projects as related to chronic diseases. The Centre provides an ideal training group for students in statistics, epidemiology, and medicine and by investigating how genomics intersects with health, some of our researchers consider the socio-cultural and clinical application of such information. Further, once a year we award the Chanchlani Global Health Research Award to an outstanding scientist whose research impacts global health.
