In recent decades, infectious diseases such as West Nile virus, Ebola, Zika, MERS, HIV, H5N1 and H1N1 influenza virus have jumped geographical boundaries and even species boundaries to emerge in new populations. This class offers an introduction to emerging and reemerging infectious disease and focuses on the underlying mechanisms of microbial emergence, epidemiology, and the strategies available to contain them. In this age of antibiotics and vaccines, why do millions of die each year from infectious diseases worldwide? With new pathogens continuing to emerge, can we ever hope to win the battle? The emergence and re-emergence of infectious diseases involves many interrelated factors. Global interconnectedness continues to increase with international travel and trade; economic, political, and cultural interactions; and human-to-human and animal-to-human interactions. This course will address the biological mechanism of infectious disease and the socioeconomic and ecological factors that influence the outbreak of infectious diseases. Two hours of laboratory (online) per week.
