BRINGING DISEASE TO ITS KNEES. Are there “good bacteria” in mother’s breast milk that could prevent asthma? Why is a certain ethnic group susceptible to a certain disease? Could a molecule be the missing link? Inside BC hospitals and university labs, some of the country’s most inquiring minds are pursuing the answers. We are proud supporters of critical world-class research. Through grants and fellowships, we provide essential funding for everything from basic lab research to clinical trials to studies in lung disease prevention.
