Message from the Director
This is both a disturbing and an exciting time in the world of Lyme disease. Disturbing because the medical and public health communities have failed to stem the steady increase in the number of cases of Lyme disease over the last 2 decades – with an expansion of over 35% between 2006-2007 alone. Exciting because advances in medical technology are leading to breakthroughs in how we understand this disease.
