Clinical Research


As part of its mission, the Farncombe Institute is committed to providing an innovative and productive training environment that attracts international talent and cultivates tomorrow’s leaders.

In its 25-year history, the GI Research community at McMaster University has provided research training for scores of graduate students and post-doctoral fellows who have gone on to research and clinical careers in Canada and around the world.

Some of the institute’s trainees now hold senior faculty positions at prestigious universities in North America and Europe, and have garnered significant distinctions such as Career Scientist Awards and Canada Research Chairs.

Other learners have remained at McMaster following the completion of their training, adding to the complement high-quality investigators and further enriching the institute’s expertise in gastrointestinal diseases. Examples include Drs. Marshall, Armstrong, Khan, Bercik, and Verdú.
