One of the pillars within the mission statement of the Canadian Lyme Disease Foundation is promoting research.
We are pleased to announce our partnership with Mount Allison University in assisting their Lyme Disease Research Network with funding.
Developing a broad capacity within Canadian universities to cope with what the government of Canada has admitted is a coming tsunami of Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases is a must. To date, research funding has come from the Canadian Institute of Health Research (CIHR) and has been quite limited in its direction and scope.
It is our hope that with research partnerships across Canada, and through our Venture Grants research program that Canada will undertake the type of research that will have an impact on the human condition of tick-borne disease.
