ICES McMaster is located in the Health Sciences Centre on the main campus of McMaster University in Hamilton. ICES McMaster officially launched on June 20, 2016 in a new 2,300 square-foot facility with seven appointed ICES scientists. The ICES McMaster facility comprises a community of local scientists, staff and students. Our central location on main campus facilitates meaningful interactions and collaborative research opportunities across many disciplines and with our hospital partners. The facility is a joint collaboration of ICES and McMaster with its academic hospitals, Hamilton Health Sciences and St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton.
