2020 Local Host Information

The 2020 G-I-N Conference will be hosted by McMaster University and will take pace in the beautiful city of Toronto, Canada.

Founded in 1887, McMaster University is consistently ranked in the top 75 globally and its Faculty of Health Sciences is in the world’s top 50. A research-intensive public university, McMaster is dedicated to teaching, learning and service. With a total student population of 33,000, including almost 5,000 graduate students, McMaster University is home to more than 70 research centres and institutions. It offers programs across a wide range of subjects through an Arts & Science Program and six Faculties: The DeGroote School of Business, and the Faculties of Engineering, Health Sciences, Humanities, Science and Social Science.

The McMaster Department of Health Research Methods, Evidence and Impact (HEI) was initially created in 1967 as the Department of Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics with the charge of “enhancing the quality of clinical research through fostering rigorous scientifically valid clinical research methods and their application in the Faculty.” Now home to over 40 full time and 160 part-time and associate faculty, 240 research and administrative staff and 400 graduate students, the Department’s research projects have led to breakthroughs in understanding and to fundamental changes in clinical practice and helped transform the clinical-research paradigm.

We are delighted to be hosting the 2020 Conference in Toronto and working with G-I-N to deliver this unique event in the field of healthcare guidance, which will explore topics in strengthening global guideline quality, technology, collaboration and adaptation. We look forward to seeing you in Toronto for #GIN2020.

We hope you will join us in 2020 and also take time out to appreciate the beauty and hospitality of Toronto and its surrounding area, including the Niagara Peninsula. See you in Toronto!
