15th LDA Conference – Saturday September 17th 2016 at Murray Edwards College, University of Cambridge

Background:

The annual LDA conference is an opportunity for medical professionals and patients/carers alike to hear about the latest research from the UK and overseas from a variety of highly-knowledgeable speakers, to compare notes with peer groups on Lyme disease and to learn more about this complex disease in a friendly environment.

LDA’s primary aim is to strive for the prevention and treatment of Lyme disease and associated tick-borne diseases; the conference greatly facilitates the sharing of expertise and knowledge.

Confirmed speakers to date:

Dr Knut Eirik Eliassen, Antibiotic Centre for Primary Care, University of Oslo.

To describe his Primary Care research project and how they have obtained a better estimate of the incidence of Lyme disease in Norway.

Dr Monica Embers, Tulane National Primate Research Center, USA

To examine the evidence for persistence of Borrelia.

Thomas Hardye School, Dorset

To explain their project: techniques and difficulties of analysing Dorset ticks for Borrelia.

A detailed programme will be published when finalised.

Health professionals please note: Public Health England is holding a Doctors’ Day at the same venue the day before (Friday 16th September) and there will be some duplication of speakers. Details of this will be announced shortly.
