Welcome to the FHS
Renowned for its interprofessional collaboration and innovation, the Faculty of Health Sciences offers the opportunity for postdoctoral fellows to join an active academic community with access to the best scientists in many fields as well as new facilities. Some of these facilities are unique among Canadian universities, including a gnotobiotic laboratory, a human vector laboratory certified to provide human vectors, a high-throughput screening facility, as well as the country’s only human embryonic stem cell library.
McMaster has been well known for its centres of excellence in, among others, clinical epidemiology, health research methodologies as well as cardiology, hematology, respiratory and allergy research. During the current decade, private supporters have helped launch the Michael G. DeGroote Institute for Infectious Disease Research, the McMaster Stem Cell and Cancer Research Institute, the Farncombe Family Digestive Health Research Institute, the Michael G. DeGroote Institute for Pain Research and Care and most recently the Michael G. DeGroote Centre for Medicinal Cannabis Research.
All this, located in Ontario’s best kept secret: the Hamilton region with well-established neighbourhoods with affordable housing, hundreds of acres of conservation lands known for waterfalls, national gardens, a lively arts community, all within commuting distance of Toronto.
