Six Investigators Awarded Lyme Research Alliance Grants
Date:5/23/2013

Stamford, CT (PRWEB) May 23, 2013

Six innovative research projects have been awarded grants worth half a million dollars by Lyme Research Alliance, the nation's largest private nonprofit funder of Lyme disease medical research at major academic institutions. The studies focus on the epidemiology of, and treatment and cure for Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. 

“LRA is proud to support the innovative research being conducted by some of the best and the brightest men and women in the field today,” said Harriet Kotsoris, MD, LRA’s Chief Scientific Officer. “Through their work, we believe there will be scientific breakthroughs in prevention strategies, diagnosis, and treatment, leading ultimately to a cure for Lyme.”

The six researchers were selected following a rigorous process using guidelines established by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Each proposal was evaluated by Grant Review Committee members of LRA’s Scientific Advisory Board and met the same scientific standards that the NIH applies to its own research grant review process. The resulting 2013-2014 grant awards represent projects judged to have exceptional prospects of delivering measurable advances.

LRA’s scientific agenda encompasses two areas critical to all those affected by Lyme disease: the discovery of an accurate and accessible diagnostic test, and the development of effective treatments for long-term or “chronic” Lyme disease. The six grants released this week reflect LRA’s scientific agenda.
