Portrait

Lorne Alan Babiuk

Dr. Lorne Babiuk was the visionary and strategist who made VIDO-InterVac (Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization-International Vaccine Centre)not only a Saskatchewan institution, but known around the world for its leadership in animal vaccine development. Its products, such as vaccines for calf scours and shipping fever, have dramatically improved both the health of animals and the economic return for western Canadian farmers.

Born at Canora, Saskatchewan, Lorne attended Sturgis Composite High School. He received a B.S.A. in Soil Science from the University of Saskatchewan in 1967 followed by a M.Sc. in Soil Microbiology in 1969. In 1972, he received a Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia's Department Microbiology and in 1987 he received a D.Sc. from the University of Saskatchewan's Department of Veterinary Microbiology.

During Lorne's tenure at VIDO-InterVac, more than $300 million was generated, with over 75 per cent of the funds coming from outside of the province. Lorne was responsible for engaging most major global animal health companies in funding research leading to the development and marketing of animal health products for the benefit of producers. Through Lorne's vision, guidance and energy, a small research organization viewed by many to be an extension of the University of Saskatchewan, grew to be a globally recognized centre of excellence in infectious disease research.

Lorne always sought to the grow the abilities and opportunities for others around him, and unselfishly gave of his time, experience and wisdom, mentoring countless researchers during his career. These associations will no doubt continue to provide new solutions to infectious diseases and food safety issues for decades to come.

Lorne Babiuk's work has been recognized internationally by a wide range of organizations. He has honorary doctorates from the University of Guelph and Colorado State University and he is the recipient of over 40 national and international awards including the Saskatchewan Order of Merit and the Order of Canada. He also received the 2012 Canada Gairdner Wightman Award, one of the most prestigious honours in biomedical science and in 2013 he was awarded the Killam Prize, Canada's top medical award.
