Canada’s Global Nexus for Pandemics and Biological Threats

Program Task Forces

Program Task Forces

Building on our track record of interdisciplinary collaboration, our global leadership in infectious disease research and our expertise in providing the best available evidence to decision makers nationally and globally, Canada’s Global Nexus experts are committed to safeguarding the health and well being of populations in Canada and around the world.

We have created four task forces within Canada’s Global Nexus, each representing an area of research strength at McMaster University and consisting of a grassroots association of our world-class experts and teams. Together with their extensive networks and partnerships, these task forces are working collaboratively to combat the existing pandemic and prepare for future health threats.
