Message from the Director

I am pleased to welcome you to the Chanchlani Research Centre. We are a vibrant group of researchers who investigate the intersection of genomics and culture on human health. Thanks to a generous donation by the Chanchlani family, and with support from McMaster University, we have the both the human and physical infrastructure to undertake large scale genomics projects, as related to chronic diseases. The centre provides an ideal training group for students in statistics, epidemiology and medicine, and by investigating how genomics intersects with health, some of our researchers consider the socio-cultural and clinical application of such information. Further, once a year we award the Chanchlani Global Health Research Award to an outstanding scientist whose research impacts global health.
