Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation is an opportunity to celebrate the impact of health research over the last 150 years. In recognition, Lawson has launched a Canada 150 website (www.lawsonresearch.ca/canada150) to celebrate our past, our present and to look forward to how Lawson research can shape the future of health care.
