The In­ter­na­tional Cen­tre for In­fec­tious Dis­eases (ICID) in Win­nipeg de­vel­ops so­lu­tions that tar­get in­fec­tious dis­eases by im­prov­ing disease-preven­tion strate­gies; en­hanc­ing biosafety and biose­cu­rity in labs, hos­pi­tals and com­mu­ni­ties; and com­mer­cial­iz­ing in­no­va­tive prod­ucts for pub­lic health prac­tice.
