ABOUT THE INSTITUTE
The Biointerfaces Institute at McMaster University is a state-of-the-art facility designed to use high-throughput methods to provide a new understanding of the nature of the biological/material interface, or biointerface.
The overarching goal of the 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.
