UOttawa begins construction on Advanced Medical Research Centre

The University of Ottawa has broken ground on its Advanced Medical Research Centre (AMRC). Scheduled to open in 2026, the AMRC will house laboratories, technology platforms, and other essential infrastructure to grow the medical biotechnology sector in the Ottawa region. The centre will also host the Ottawa Health Innovation Hub, where researchers, clinicians, and investors will work together to accelerate the commercialization of new treatments. β€œ(The AMRC) will allow us to accelerate the pace of our discoveries and train more scientists for the future,” said UOttawa AVP, Research Support and Infrastructure Dr Julie St-Pierre. β€œIt will permit basic discoveries to move quickly through the research and innovation pipeline so that we can maximize the impact of our work for the community.”
