Applications Being Accepted for Lyme Disease Review Panel

Applications are now being accepted for physicians and scientists to participate in a review panel that will evaluate the literature and other information on Lyme disease in order to make a recommendation to IDSA on the need for a revision or update of the Society's 2006 Lyme disease guidelines.

In May 2008, IDSA signed an agreement with the Attorney General of Connecticut ending his antitrust investigation of the Society's Lyme disease guidelines. Under the agreement, the guidelines remain in effect; but IDSA is agreeing to an extra step: a one-time special review to determine whether the 2006 guidelines should be revised or updated.

The time commitment will be approximately two to four hours per week or 10 to 15 hours per month for eight to 12 months. Applicants must be physicians or PhD-level scientists. An ombudsman jointly selected by IDSA and the attorney general will evaluate applicants for potential conflicts of interest.

The following must be completed, submitted, and received by October 1, 2008:

  • Application
  • CV
  • Notarized conflict-of-interest disclosure form

The online application, statement of interest disclosure form, and additional information about the selection criteria and time commitment are on IDSA's website. IDSA members are encouraged to apply.
