Welcome to the Grandfield Research Group at McMaster University, Canada. Our team focuses on the development and characterization of biomaterials– pioneering the investigation of bone-implant interfaces and mineralized tissues with multiscale, multidimensional and correlative microscopies. The insights made through this work are contributing to the design of novel materials for improved implant success, and an improved understanding of healthy and pathological mineralized tissues, such as bones and teeth.







Ivan and Chiara join the lab.

Daniel and James successfully defend their MASc theses.

Kathryn presents at the European Atom Probe Tomography Workshop.
