His Postgraduate Studies

He pursued his postdoctoral studies, taking advanced courses in mathematics, biology, and biochemistry. At the beginning of 1933, he obtained his Bachelor of Science, composed of three study certificates, from the Université de Montréal.

In 1933, Dr. Frappier was the first North American researcher solicited by the National Research Council of Canada to confirm the quality and effectiveness of the BCG vaccine and to develop a safe production process. The Institut Pasteur entrusted Dr. Frappier with a BCG strain that he brought back to Canada in order to produce a live but attenuated vaccine here. Dr. Frappier was a supporter of the rational application of antituberculosis vaccination by BCG in Canada.
