In founding a research institute, Dr. Frappier wanted to achieve four goals: the production of biological products, research, teaching, and community service.

Throughout his career at the Institute, Dr. Frappier created laboratories that were often the first of their kind in Quebec and among the first of their kind in Canada. He also organized the production of current vaccines, particularly new ones against tuberculosis, polio, influenza, measles, whooping cough, and other diseases.

Overall, Dr. Frappier was a pioneer in the field of microbiological research and preventive medicine in Canada.
