“Identification of neuroinflammation in the brains of patients with post-treatment Lyme disease”
Dr. Luft’s work focuses on identifying the sources of inflammation in the brains of patients suffering from persisting neurological symptoms attributed to Lyme disease. He will compare PET scans in these patients compared to healthy controls to identify regions of the brain that undergo inflammation.
