Awarded Project: "Defining protective antibody-mediated immunity to Borrelia burgdorferi"

Defining protective antibody-mediated immunity to Borrelia burgdorferi 

Dr. Nicole Baumgarth was awarded a one year grant from the Global Lyme Alliance, Inc. The goal of the project is to reveal the antibacterial properties of antibodies generated in response to infection of mice with Borrelia burgdorferi, the causative agent of Lyme disease in humans, and thereby to elucidate immune evasion mechanisms that allow B. burgdorferi to establish persistent infection in its reservoir host species.
