SCI 351 - Emerging Infectious Diseases: From AIDS to Zika

Due to unprecedented emergence rates, Emerging Infectious Diseases (EIDs) have taken center stage in our society over this past decade. These diseases include SARS, MERS, Ebola, chikungunya, avian flu, AIDS and most recently, Zika. The emergence of these diseases is multifactorial in nature. Our approach in confronting these diseases needs to be dynamic, systemic, and critical, and must include the collaboration of basic scientists, clinicians, social scientists, and epidemiologists. Course content will range from molecular scientific phenomena to public health and social policy issues encountered by individuals, families, and society. This course is particularly relevant for NAS, SBS, and Public Health Students.
