Host Institution


McMaster University

Through its continued dedication to innovative education and ground-breaking research, McMaster University has earned its reputation as one of the leading post-secondary institutions in Canada.

McMaster’s medical school was the beneficiary of the largest single cash gift in Canadian history from entrepreneur and philanthropist Michael G. DeGroote. The $105-million donation will be divided between a $64-million endowment fund, supporting education, health care and medical research in perpetuity, and a $41-million capital fund directed to construction and outfitting of laboratories and hospital units.

AllerGen’s administrative offices are located in the Michael G. DeGroote Centre for Learning and Discovery.

McMaster’s health sciences research spans the spectrum from curiosity-driven basic science in the laboratory to clinical research at the bedside and in the community.

In its continual quest for excellence in research, McMaster has accumulated some remarkable achievements:

AllerGen acknowledges, with appreciation, ongoing support from McMaster University and especially Dr. Paul O’Byrne, Dean & Vice-President, Faculty of Health Sciences; Dr. Rob Baker, Vice-President, Research; Dr. Gillian Goward, Associate Dean, Research and External Relations; and Dr. Patrick Deane, President and Vice-Chancellor, and Board of Directors member of AllerGen.
