On Tuesday, July 26th, Federal Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, Navdeep Bains, announced that a federal grant of almost $12 million will assist McMaster University in opening the new research centre, Biomedical Engineering and Advance Manufacturing - BEAM. It will occupy the 40,000 sq.ft. warehouse attached to the MARC facility at MIP and is expected to open at the end of 2017.
BEAM is a joint project between McMaster University and Germany's
Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology, which is Europe's largest applied research organization. It will focus on research and development in life sciences and biotechnology. One project BEAM will work on is a product that uses your own white blood cells to attack and destroy cancerous tumours.
