Donating to Research at the Li Ka Shing Institute of Virology

Financial support for virology and immunology research at the Li Ka Shing Institute of Virology (LKSIoV) primarily comes from federal and provincial granting agencies, corporations, and individual philanthropists.

Apart from the above listed sources, we count on you to make a difference. We require your support to ensure the continuance of the scientific advancements in virology and  immunology, amongst others, at the LKSIoV. We strive to continuously learn more about viruses and their pathogenesis to translate these findings into improved therapeutics and treatments for Canadians, and others worldwide.
