Dr. Nathan Wolfe of Stanford University will discuss how novel viruses enter into the human population from animals and go on to become pandemics. Dr. Wolfe will discuss attempts of his own research group to study this process and attempt to control viruses that have only recently emerged. Creating a global network at the interface of humans and animals work is being done to move viral forecasting from a theoretical possibility to a reality.
