You can participate in vector-borne disease research projects in the Northeast! Learn more about citizen science research opportunities supported by both NEVBD and our regional partners on this page.
Tick Research Opportunities
New York State Tick Blitz
a d NEVBD collaborators at Cornell University are looking for volunteers to participate in this summer 2022 tick surveillance project. Residents of the Hudson Valley and Central regions of New York State are invited to join us in this effort to understand the northward expansion of ticks in the state. The Tick Blitz is scheduled for June 20 - July 1, 2022.
The TickApp Project
NEVBD collaborators at Columbia University and the Midwest Center of Excellence in Vector-Borne Diseases have developed a smartphone app to help track where humans and ticks come into contact. This project team is seeking participation by individuals living in a high-risk area for Lyme disease. Sharing your experience and perspective with us will help us learn about the risk factors for tick borne disease and design better methods that prevent tick bites and tick-borne disease.
Citizen Science Opportunities
Do you have a citizen science project at your organization? We are eager to share opportunities where communities can get involved in vector-borne disease research. If you have an opportunitiy to share, please contact us today!
