Synapse Life Sciences Consortium

The Synapse Life Science Consortium is the formal regional cluster organization for the life sciences cluster in the greater Hamilton region. Synapse is a not-for-profit focused on supporting initiatives and projects that magnify the impact of collective action across the cluster ecosystem, and accelerate the commercialization of life science innovation.

Synapse seeks to support all companies and institutions that make up the Hamilton life science cluster, celebrating the strengths and successes of industry leaders and new startups.

Synapse is the result of a coming together of key anchor institutions in Hamilton’s regional life science cluster.  Started in 2016, the Consortium initiative brought together leaders from across the region, including both private and public sector organizations who saw significant opportunity for greater collaboration and coordination across the cluster.

Our vision is to be recognized by each of our members as a collaborative hub to drive global health innovation. Synapse’s mission is focused on creating an ecosystem to attract investment and develop health innovation for global export.
