For tick research, community involvement is key

Vett Lloyd smiles while leaning next to a microscope in a lab. A stuffed toy tick sits on the microscope.

Most of us cringe at the thought of receiving ticks in the mail, but not Dr. Vett Lloyd.

This is part of her morning routine at her lab in Sackville, New Brunswick. Vett, and her dynamic research team, is currently working on a local maritime initiative testing ticks for various pathogens out of Mount Allison University.

In episode 20 of Looking at Lyme, we explore the importance of community involvement in tick research to help promote awareness and education of tick-borne illnesses.

This episode is boisterous, educational, and informative – we hope you enjoy listening!
