Lyme Disease Research and Prevention

We’re committed to advancing Lyme disease research.

At Nuvance Health®, we understand the importance of advancing research to discover ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat Lyme disease.

Seeking Solutions

Founded in 2010, the Lyme Disease Biobank at Rudy L. Ruggles Biomedical Research Institute aims to advance our understanding of the disease. The biobank includes a collection of human biospecimens (blood, serum and more) as well as a vast database of patients with Lyme disease.

We make biobank data available to researchers in the field, in compliance with appropriate regulatory protocols.  With this information, Nuvance Health aims to foster collaborative efforts that help overcome barriers to the diagnosis and treatment of acute and late-stage Lyme disease.

If you have ever been diagnosed with Lyme disease, you may be eligible for participation in one of our studies.
