The University of Alberta Canada is using $41 million ($33.5 million in U.S. dollars) in research funding to develop a center to study prion and protein folding diseases.

Called the University of Alberta Center for Prions and Protein Folding Diseases, sixteen researchers from different disciplines within the University are joining forces to try and find answers to why some cows contract BSE and others don’t. Other research initiatives include developing a BSE test for use on live cattle and developing an environmentally friendly way to dispose of wastewater from slaughterhouses.
