Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses present an urgent public health challenge. We need all hands on deck for coordinated public health efforts to address the real threat these diseases pose. Developing new and better ways to address these diseases is crucial—but real advancement cannot occur in a vacuum and partnerships can accelerate progress.
Together, Redefining the Lyme Status Quo
The Lyme Innovation Accelerator (LymeX), a partnership between the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Foundation, is the world’s largest public-private partnership for Lyme disease. LymeX, as a component of a larger moonshot, is identifying, developing, and implementing advancements in Lyme disease care — including next-generation diagnostics.
