We will notify you when conference registration opens.
Welcome to our 3rd year hosting the Lyme Disease in the Era of Precision Medicine conference.
This year’s unique event is a special opportunity to spend two days sharing in the collective works and experiences of those in the Lyme Disease community.
This day will focus on the exciting new advancements of the scientific and medical communities. This event will be oriented to specialized topics and discussions for the research community. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
The second day of our event will be designed with patients, caretakers, and the larger community in mind. Researchers, clinician, patients, families, and advocates will come together to share experiences and find opportunities to advance our understanding of this challenging disease. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
Experts at the front lines of research will share their work and discuss recent discoveries coming out of scientific exploration in Lyme Disease.
We will be discussing emerging next generation technologies and the impact they have on our ability to research Lyme Disease and enhance opportunities for collaboration.
This discussion will be focused on how patients, caregivers, and clinicians can collectively build a partnership to improving our understanding and our ability to treat Lyme Disease.
We will be discussing opportunities for how we can all get involved, make a change, and build together the path towards supporting, understanding, treating, curing, and preventing tick borne diseases.
All patients living with chronic Lyme are familiar with the symptoms of joint pain, swelling, fatigue and headaches. This patient workshop, led by Vicki Kobliner, MS, RDN, focuses on nutrition and its central role in battling these symptoms and strengthening one’s immune system.
We will give you a crash course in the basics of “N-of-1 trials”: what they are, how they work, when they can help patients choose between two treatments. We will ask for your input about important health issues facing chronic lyme patients and where you believe N-of-1 trials may be most helpful.
Its comprehensive focus: those who are dedicated to prevention, diagnostic and treatment innovations are exhibited alongside those who educate, perform research and advocate for patient care and support.
The fully immersive interview booth will highlight the individuals and stories faced in the battle with Lyme disease. We seek to represent the core of the human Lyme disease experience from the perspective of patient, clinician, caregiver, and researcher.
In addition to highlighting cutting edge research from scientists and clinicians, we’ve designed this year to provide patients with a greater sense of clarity on the advances the scientific community is making and how they can become more actively involved as citizen scientists.
We are an engaged community of clinicians, researchers, patients, advocates, and innovators. Our community of collaborators comes together annually to share in the mission of understanding, treating, and preventing this complex and devastating disease.
The Institute for Next Generation Healthcare is building a multiscale integrated network of Lyme Disease (LymeMIND) that will represent a unified, predictive model of Lyme disease.
LymeMIND will enable a systems medicine approach to identify novel biomarkers and new therapeutic opportunities. We are working with a network of collaborators to interrogate the complex biology of samples collected from Lyme-affected individuals using molecular profiling technologies and applying advanced statistical and machine learning approaches to move rapidly from “Big Data” to knowledge and improved understanding of the disease.
