Research Strategic Plan

Research activity at Hamilton Health Sciences is conducted in partnership with McMaster University to foster a culture of inquiry and provide support for ongoing development.

The purpose of this plan is to strengthen research areas of high priority by recruiting exceptional investigators and developing the infrastructure, equipment and other resources necessary to enhance research efforts.

This planned approach will be used to measure our success and progress using standard criteria, including publication record, grants, reference citations and career investigator awards.
