COMBATING TICK-BORNE ILLNESS THROUGH
INNOVATIVE TICK IMMUNITY RESEARCH
Tick Immunity is a P01 Grant Program funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), for an ongoing tick research program to understand the immune responses of ticks that contribute to the spread of major diseases like Lyme disease. This is a multi-institutional collaborative program, with University of Maryland, College Park, as the lead investigator, and Yale University, the University of Minnesota, and the University of Maryland School of Medicine as co-investigators. This prestigious grant is the first-of-its-kind in the field of tick research, and includes funding for research, education, and outreach with an annual symposium.
