Purchase of equipment to make innovative discoveries

To respond to growth in activities, consolidate achievements, provide development support and enable researchers to make innovative discoveries, the HMR Research Centre depends on the HMR Foundation’s essential support.

In 2016, the Foundation contributed $951,000 toward the acquisition of new equipment and replacement of old equipment. Thanks to this contribution, the HMR Research Centre was able to purchase an autoclave for sterilizing equipment using high-pressure steam, which is an essential best practice for laboratories; an agitator plate for one of the cell culture rooms; freezers and refrigerators to store human samples; oxygen-level detectors; and a Bioplex system for peptide/protein analyses, used primarily by researchers focusing on immunology and oncology.
