For more than twenty years, Ostfeld and his research team have been investigating how environmental conditions influence the spread of tick-borne illness. Learn why white-footed mice make bad neighbors and how predators, biodiversity, development, and climate change all play a role in setting the stage for Lyme disease risk. Ostfeld is currently field-testing a vaccine for mice, with the goal of minimizing Lyme disease transmission to people.
