Lessons from Zoonotic Viruses

What do zoonotic spillover events reveal about virus-host biology and how do scientists use these lessons to inform future mitigation strategies? 

Viruses that jump from animals to humans have plagued human populations for centuries. From rabies to the Zika virus to the recent SARS-CoV-2 virus, understanding how each virus spills over and infects new species reveals critical insights into viral dynamics, human biology, and disease. In this webinar, Pranav Pandit and Daniel Streicker will discuss zoonotic virus pathology, spillover events, and future mitigation strategies.

Topics to be covered

  • Using virus-host networks to predict zoonotic disease transmission
  • Mitigating rabies with self-disseminating vaccines

Thursday, February 23rd, 2023 | 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Eastern Time
This webinar will be available to view live and on demand.
