Bayer supports research in infectious diseases

Published: March 6, 2006

Bayer Inc. is providing $120,000 over two years to McMaster University to support a research fellowship in infectious diseases.

Dr. Andrew Morris, an associate professor in the Department of Medicine and director of the Infectious Diseases Residency Training Program, said the money will allow the hiring of a physician, who is completing his or her training in infectious diseases, to conduct research and develop skills for a career in infectious diseases.

Bayer has contributed the money as part of its ongoing commitment to fund scientific research in this area. The company invests more than $1 million annually to anti-infective research, in the pursuit of new therapies.

The infectious disease/medical microbiology program operated through McMaster’s Faculty of Health Sciences is one of the largest in Canada.
