SEEMAY CHOU, PH.D.

Chou studies the mechanisms driving tick-borne transmission of bacterial pathogens, such as Borrelia burgdorferi, the causative agent of Lyme disease. She would like to understand why only certain tick species are capable of transmitting these bacteria, with the goal of identifying new strategies for blocking the cycle of infection.
