About GLA

Global Lyme Alliance is the leading 501(c)(3) dedicated to conquering Lyme and other tick-borne diseases through funding innovative research, offering effective education and awareness programs, supporting the needs of patients and caregivers, and advancing, through science and data, reliable diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and an eventual cure.

Our vision is to improve the quality of life for individuals who suffer from Lyme and tick-borne diseases.


GLA-funded researchers—who were the first to prove the existence of the previously disputed chronic Lyme condition—have decoded the Lyme genome, discovered how the disease can survive antibiotic therapy, and now understand far more about what makes the Lyme bacterium different than any other type of infection.
