Since 1992, the Lyme Disease Association Inc. (LDA) has awarded 123 research grants from coast to coast. This research has appeared in 58 peer-reviewed journals to date. The Lyme Disease Association is one of a few sources of private, nonprofit tick-borne diseases research funding in the United States. The LDA strives to fund the most relevant research and cutting edge research aimed at investigating the prevention and treatment of tick-borne diseases.

The Center brings together researchers from various disciplines and from around the US.
