The Peter Boris Centre For Addictions Research, McMaster University

The Peter Boris Center for Addictions Research is a joint collaboration between McMaster University and St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton to advance the scientific understanding of addiction. Located at the St. Joseph's West 5th campus, the state-of-the-art Juravinski Centre for Integrated Healthcare, the Centre serves as a nexus for faculty in McMaster's Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences and collaborators at St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton and Homewood Health Centre. Although the interests in the Centre are diverse, our collective goal is to conduct innovative empirical research that pushes the boundaries of new knowledge and bridges the gap between science and practice.
