Biointerfaces Institute opens

McMaster’s Biointerfaces Institute is officially open for research and discovery. The 10,000 square foot facility will see researchers and industry partners exploring surfaces to create the next generation of medical devices and diagnostic kits, maybe even hospital doorknobs that can repel bacteria. The $22-million project was funded by the Canada Foundation for Innovation and Ontario’s Ministry of Research and Innovation, with support from industry partners and McMaster University.
