“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” Star Yolanda Foster, Mark Eshoo, and Dr. Steven Schutzer to be Honored at Lyme Research Alliance's Gala on April 6, 2013
Date:3/11/2013

p>

Also to be honored at the Gala, for his unfaltering committment to developing better diagnostics for Lyme and other tick-borne diseases, is Mark Eshoo, Ph.D, director of new technology at Ibis Biosciences, a subsidiary of Abbott. At Ibis, Dr. Eshoo is working to improve the sensitivity of diagnostic tests for Lyme disease and continues to make progress for the detection of Lyme disease during the initial stages of the infection when diagnosis and treatment are most effective.

Both scientists will receive the Lauren F. Brooks Hope Award, named for Lauren Brooks, a former LRA (then Time for Lyme) board member who gave unwavering support to families looking for guidance in the face of Lyme disease. Brooks died in 2007 but her humanitarian spirit, along with her passion and tireless efforts, live on in this special award in her name honoring those who are making strides in research and treatment in our pursuit of a cure.

“We are thankful that Steve Schutzer and Mark Eshoo have dedicated their efforts to this important foundational work in the tick-borne disease arena,” said Harriet Kotsoris, MD, LRA’s chief scientific officer. “We believe that by naming these esteemed scientists as our honorees we are giving important recognition to science that creates a foundation on which other researchers in the field can build, with the ultimate goal of developing a reliable diagnostic tool and an effective treatment for persistent, or ‘chronic’ Lyme.”

The Gala will be chaired by Ally Hilfiger, who received the organization’s first-ever Star Light Award in 2011, Mark Hopwood and Brent Kristoff. Corporate Chairs are Craig Cogut, founder and managing partner of Pegasus Capital Advisors, L.P., and Deborah Cogut, founder and vice-chair of The Polyphony Foundation.

The event will be emceed by Ira Joe Fisher, best known as the jovial weather reporter on CBS’s “The Saturday Early Show.” Fisher is a prolific writer and poet and has authored
