One primary focus of the Foundation is the establishment and operation of Canada's first research facility to study Lyme Disease and eventually other vector-borne illnesses. It will also educate medical professionals and the public through workshops and seminars. Vector-borne diseases are transmitted to humans through the bite of infected vectors such as mosquitoes and especially ticks which are predicted to increase significantly in population in Canada by 2020.
G. Magnotta Lyme Disease Research Lab
After years of diligent work, the Foundation has achieved the long-awaited research portion of its mandate. Through our $1.4 million grant to the University of Guelph, the new G. Magnotta Lyme Disease Research Lab is now open at the university that will lead to better diagnostics and treatment for Canadians.
