Frontiers of Research on Infectious Diseases

National Academy Member Dr. Guy Palmer of Washington State University and University of Washington Professor Sam Miller, Director of the Northwest Regional Center for Excellence for Biodefense and Emerging Infectious Diseases Research, will show examples of how innovative technology can help us better understand the complexities of infectious disease and how many such diseases arise from our friends in the animal kingdom (e.g., mad cow disease, avian flu). The program will be moderated by Steve Davis, the interim CEO of the Infectious Disease Research Institute. Jacquelline Sherris, Vice President of Global Programs at PATH, will be the discussant.
