February 6, 2012

The Boris family of Hamilton has donated $30 million to McMaster University to accelerate the institution's innovations in health research, education, and care. $24 million will be used to establish The Boris Family Centre in Human Stem Cell Therapies, which will speed the commercial development of discoveries at the McMaster Stem Cell and Cancer Research Institute. The remaining $6 million will support a unique clinic, to be built in the McMaster University Medical Centre, that will allow patients with complex health problems to see several specialists and have related tests during one visit.
