Research Lab Results for Lyme disease
John Aucott LabPrincipal Investigator:
John Aucott, M.D.
Research in the John Aucott Lab focuses on the development of accurate diagnostic tests for all... stages of Lyme disease. We work closely with Dr. Mark Soloski on the Study of Lyme disease Immunology and Clinical Events (SLICE), a longitudinal, matched-control study of patients diagnosed with early untreated Lyme disease. The objective is to use the collected biological samples to help identify novel Lyme disease biomarkers that can inform diagnoses, outcomes and the knowledge about disease pathophysiology. view moreResearch Areas: clinical outcomes, gender differences, biomarkers, pathophysiology, immune heterogeneity, Lyme disease
Marvel Cognitive Neuropsychiatric Research LaboratoryLab WebsitePrincipal Investigator:
Cherie Marvel, Ph.D.
The Cognitive Neuropsychiatric Research Laboratory (CNRLab) is part of the Division of Cognitiv...e Neuroscience within the Department of Neurology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Its current projects include investigating the motor system's contribution to cognitive function; HIV-related neuroplasticity and attention-to-reward as predictors of real world function; and brain function and cognition in Lyme disease. view moreResearch Areas: HIV, neuroplasticity, movement disorders, cognitive function
Michael Melia LabPrincipal Investigator:
Michael Melia, M.D.
Research in the Michael Melia Lab focuses primarily on nocardia infections, Lyme disease and he...patitis C. Our studies have included key topics such as risk factors for incident infections during hepatitis C treatment, racial differences in eligibility for hepatitis C treatment and misdiagnosis of Lyme arthritis using the Borrelia burgdorferi immunoblot testing method. We also have a longstanding interest in medical education and work on curriculum to improve the quality of education for medical students and interns. view moreResearch Areas: medical education, nocardia infections, infectious disease, AIDS, HIV, Lyme disease, hepatitis C
Paul Auwaerter LabPrincipal Investigator:
Paul Auwaerter, M.D., M.B.A.
Research in the Paul Auwaerter Lab focuses on tick-borne diseases, include Lyme disease. We’re ...also interested in point-of-care information technology. Recent research includes investigating the significance of positive test results for Lyme disease in low-prevalence regions and examining the geographic expansion of Lyme disease in the southeastern U.S. from 2000 to 2014. view moreResearch Areas: tick-borne diseases, Lyme disease, information technology
