Research Program

lyme disease picture of a lab

The Lyme Neuroborreliosis Research Program focuses on the development of animal models of the disease, and the pursuit of new technologies to improve diagnosis and treatment for patients. This translational medicine approach integrates scientific discoveries in the laboratory with clinical trials guided by epidemiology and statistical tools, with the hope of identifying new and promising diagnostic technology and therapeutic strategies. Eligibility for participation in the clinical trials rests only upon a definite diagnosis of Lyme disease.
