ABOUT US

LymeMIND utilizes innovation, transparency and collaboration to accelerate the field of Lyme disease research.

Through our integrated knowledge base, we aim to help Lyme disease researchers identify novel biomarkers and therapeutic target candidates. LymeMIND brings together leaders in Lyme disease research through collaborations, educational events, and an annual conference.

LymeMIND is made possible by generous support from the Cohen Lyme & Tickborne Disease Initiative. Launched in 2015, the Initiative seeks to gather the brightest minds within the research and medical communities to better understand and ultimately stop the rapid spread of tickborne illnesses. It has committed over $60 million to more than 25 research projects across the nation.
