Lyme Research Alliance (formerly known as Time for Lyme) is the leading funding organization for cutting-edge research into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of Lyme and other tick-borne diseases by universities and major medical institutions around the country.

Since our founding in 1998 as the Greenwich Lyme Disease Task force, Lyme Research Alliance (LRA) has raised over $5 million to combat Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. In 2007, LRA (then Time for Lyme) created a partnership with Columbia University Medical Center in new York City and the Lyme Disease Association to endow the nation’s first Lyme and Tick-Borne Disease Research Center at Columbia. In addition to supporting work at the Columbia Center, LRA funds breakthrough research teams at academic institutions across the country.
