UoGuelph’s G Magnotta Lyme Disease Research Lab receives $1.2M for research

The University of Guelph has announced that its G Magnotta Lyme Disease Research Lab will receive a grant of $1.2M from the G Magnotta Foundation for Vector-Borne Diseases to support the lab’s research on Lyme disease. The three-year funding will support research on the bacterial pathogen associated with Lyme disease and the disease itself, with the goal of improving the prognosis and available treatment for people who have been infected. The funding will support various projects, such as mapping the “proteomics” of the bacterium, learning more about the impact the microbial processes have on the body, and learning about why different people have different responses to treatment.
