First Impressions

Eva Sapi, Ph.D. is an associate professor of Biology and Environmental Science at New Haven University. She joined the University of New Haven faculty in 2001. Eva grew up in Hungary and earned her Ph.D. in genetics at Eotvos Lorand University in Budapest before coming to the United States for postdoctoral training in molecular biology at the Yale University’s School of Medicine.

Now, as an Associate Professor and University Research Scholar at the Department of Biology and Environmental Science where she teaches undergraduate and graduate biology courses, she researches Lyme Disease, Pathogenic Biofilm, Antibiotics Resistance, and Different Morphology of Borrelia burgdorferi.

She may not agree with me, but I believe Eva is the world’s authority on how borrelia behaves inside the body.

Warmly,

Lyme and Health Experts

As a regular listener to Lyme Ninja Radio, you will be exposed to many experts in and around the Lyme Community. It’s important to keep tabs on the latest developments in Lyme research and treatment, and it’s also important to cross pollinate these ideas with experts outside of the Lyme community. Many scientific breakthroughs happen unexpectedly. The most famous example is the accidental discovery of penicillin. By including experts from field outside of the Lyme community, I hope to keep our thinking fresh.

Below are the most recent Expert interviews.

Bob Miller was inspired to start examining chronic lyme disease, and he founded NutriGenetic Research Institute to research and publish reports on the relationship between genetic variants, labs and presenting symptoms. In 2016 he won an award at the european ILADS conference for his research into the genetic variants in those with lyme disease.

Dr. Elena Frid is a Board Certified Neurologist and Clinical Neurophysiologist, widely regarded as a investigating diagnostician,adviser and treatment strategist specializing in Infections Induced Autoimmune Disorders. Pioneering the field of Autoimmune Neurology, she often sees patients (children and adults) with complex cases of Lyme disease and co-infections resulting in multiple neurological complaints.

When Holly Ahern found out several years ago that her daughter’s mysterious illness was Lyme disease, she quickly immersed herself in the subject. She soon learned about the controversies swirling around the disease and came to realize that many others were suffering like her daughter.

Lorraine Johnson is the Chief Executive Officer of LymeDisease.org and an attorney advocate. In 2014 she co-authored the Lyme disease guidelines of the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society. She has spoken before state legislatures, US and international governmental agencies, and at healthcare policy conferences throughout the world.
