NatCapLyme is committed to accelerating the efforts to advance the science associated with Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. Lyme is the fastest growing infectious disease in the United States and is at epidemic levels in certain regions of the country. Despite this growing threat, federal research remains significantly underfunded.

Recognizing that the path from research discovery to new treatment options is long and expensive, the emphasis of our grant review committee is to fund the most promising and innovative research. We also fund educational grants based on the belief that education is the best defense against Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. Our grants range between $5,000 to $50,000 and proposals may be submitted to NatCapLyme throughout the year.

NatCapLyme’s overarching goal is to alleviate human suffering. Therefore, our research priorities focus on seeking new pathways to diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of these diseases. We are particularly interested in the development of treatments that, on a daily basis, improve the quality of life for people afflicted with Lyme and other tick-borne diseases.
