Perinatal transmission of Lyme disease was the focus of a June 2022 scientific think-tank at the Banbury Centre at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory which was funded by the Cohen Foundation. Meeting organizers included Dr. Monica Embers, Dr. Charlotte Mao and Dr. Liz Darling and Sue Faber of LymeHope.
Invited experts included clinicians, researchers, experts in government, patient advocates and representation from funding agencies. An agenda of this meeting has been posted by the Banbury Centre.
As a result of this meeting we have identified clear action items and are in the process of writing a report which will be published. More about the Banbury meeting can be found by watching the panel presentation for the Cohen Foundation 2022 panel The Value of Partnerships: A Multi-disciplinary Approach to Addressing Perinatal Transmission of Lyme disease.
