Re-Invasion of Lyme Disease in the Northeastern United States

Penn Science Cafe

Lyme disease appears to have re-emerged in the late 1900s after hundreds of years of near-complete absence. In this talk, Dustin Brisson will share his research exploring how and why Lyme disease has recently and rapidly returned to be the most prevalent vector-borne disease in North America.

Expert faculty from the University of Pennsylvania shed light on their research at the Penn Science Café. It's an evening of engaging, stimulating conversation, with a Q&A session following each talk.

Presented by Penn Arts and Sciences in partnership with the Office of University Communications, Penn Café events are free and open to the public, but RSVPs are encouraged. For more information or directions, contact Gina Bryan at 215-898-8721 or email at
