Overview:

Bay Area Lyme's mission is to put a stop to Lyme disease. Our focus is on prevention and the development of better diagnostics and treatments.  

Our model aims to leverage the entrepreneurial spirit and innovation of the Bay Area to catalyze new and innovative projects around the country through:


Directed funding to dedicated Lyme projects

Bay Area Lyme Foundation is confident that the application of new talent and cutting-edge technologies will have a dramatic impact on finding a cure to a disease that has historically been severely underfunded. To achieve this goal, we work with world-class scientists to collaborate on focused Lyme projects, leveraging learnings from other fields of medicine and research. We also make it a priority to engage the investment and biotech community so that breakthroughs in the laboratory quickly translate to solutions for patients.

Preferences:

  • We want to understand how your research will affect patients who are not easy to diagnose and treat. In particular, what is your approach to addressing early stage vs. late stage or post treatment Lyme disease?
  • Ecological studies that relate to the prevention of lyme disease are also funded.

Ineligibility:

  • We do not fund tuition or travel costs unless the researchers are invited to present results by Bay Area Lyme.
