G. Magnotta Foundation for Vector-Borne Diseases

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.
