The Ontario government announced this week it is investing $33 million to support over 300 McMaster University researchers involved in health, digital media, and clean energy research projects.

The funding will support the development of sophisticated new biomaterials and devices, the production of a new generation of advanced solar cells that capture and convert much more of the sun's rays, and the prevention and treatment of acute intestinal infections.

The investment is part of a $268-million Ontario-wide investment that will support 214 projects and over 3,300 researchers in 14 cities.
