MIAM's vision is to discover, design, fabricate and understand new materials. MIAM is strengthening interdisciplinary interactions and partnerships among faculties and departments at McGill University involved in new materials. MIAM fosters creativity, promotes scholarship, enhances research capabilities, accelerates the transfer of research results into practical uses, attracts world-class faculty, students and post-doctoral fellows, attracts the attention of industry, and creates new funding opportunities.
The Centre for Biorecognition and Biosensors (CBB) is a network of researchers who have a common interest in biosensing and the development of diagnostic tools. The Centre's vision is to be amongst the world’s best in research on diagnostic tools using nanostructured biorecognition systems for biosensing, and to attract outstanding investigators in the field to McGill University and member institutions.
