The National Bee Diagnostic Centre Expansion

Why we developed the National Bee Diagnostic Centre (want to better understand the pests, pathogens and parasites that are killing the  bees) – what it does (specialized diagnostics) – how it reached capacity in year 3 (major applied research project and partnerships with beekeeping industry, government and University scientists) and how we are expanding it (a partnership with AAFC Beaverlodge)…which we think will enable Canada to take its place in the International Beekeeping community (i.e. international recognition).
