Topics course. This seminar takes an interdisciplinary approach to understanding emerging and resurgent infectious diseases. We focus on those aspects of the biology of hosts and pathogens that drive the transmission of diseases, on the ecological factors (migration, climate change, population growth) that contribute to the spread of disease, and on the epidemiological approaches that measure the spread and impact of infectious agents. Ultimately, the seminar seeks to establish an evidence-driven framework for rational public health decision-making at the local, national and global levels.
