The offices of an institute dedicated to broadening Canada’s research capacity in infectious disease and the response of the human immune system, opened today at McMaster University.
The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Institute of Infection and Immunity (CIHR III) is McMaster’s first institute sponsored by the federal health research funding agency.
CIHR President Michael Strong was on campus for the official inauguration and ribbon cutting for the new offices on the fourth floor of the Michael G. DeGroote Centre for Learning and Discovery.
“The Institutes are the life blood of CIHR’s strategic initiatives,” he said. “To host one is a tremendous contribution to the vitality of Canadian health research; CIHR is very appreciative to McMaster University for their support of this Institute and for ensuring the success of Dr. Kaushic.”
