Research programme launch – our Innovation Fund is open!

We are thrilled to announce that our Innovation Fund is now open for research funding applications into Lyme disease.

About the fund

This pioneering fund will see us award small grants for innovative research projects into improving testing and treatment of Lyme disease.

The aim is to build capacity within Lyme disease research. We want to help get ideas for pilot studies off paper and in the lab.

It’s hoped that these awards will enable exciting discoveries, which can then be developed into larger scale research projects.

This is a small but exciting step towards developing the landscape of Lyme disease research in the UK.

Who can apply?

The award is open to accredited laboratories, academic institutions and small commercial enterprises in the UK or Europe.

Anyone wishing to apply should head to our Innovation Fund webpage for more information, and to download the application form and guidance.

We hope to announce the recipients of the grants in May of this year.

How you can get involved

Are you passionate about the need for better testing and treatment of Lyme disease?

Do you want to help give hope and answers to UK Lyme patients?

Do you want to be part of this pioneering research fund?

If your answer to any of these questions is yes, please consider making a donation of any size to our fund. We need your help to ensure the fund is able to support as many valuable projects as possible.

Thank you.
