What is BioHealth?
Biotechnology helps people live longer and healthier lives by developing new therapies through innovative research. These innovations lead to breakthroughs in vaccine development, disease therapies, and diagnostic testing.
Researchers in biotechnology apply cellular and bio-molecular processes to develop medical treatments. Their creations result in improved methods for prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease.
These products may include new therapeutics for the treatment of disease, such as cancer and heart disease with fewer side effects, new and safer vaccines, more accurate diagnostic tests, and many more – all in an effort to prolong life and advance public health practices that improve the lives of all Canadians
