Biointerfaces Institute

Based at McMaster University, the Biointerfaces Institute is a state-of-the-art facility implementing high-throughput research pipelines to investigate the nature of the biological/material interface or biointerface. The overarching goal of the Biointerfaces Institute is to understand how biological systems respond to the introduction of synthetic materials, and conversely, how an engineered interface responds to (or is compatible with) a biological system.

The Biointerfaces Institute has several core faculty members with expertise in high-throughput synthesis, surface characterization, polymer chemistry, bioassay development, and ophthalmic biomaterials, with backgrounds in Chemistry, Chemical Biology, Biochemistry, Chemical Engineering, and Biomedical Engineering.
