Dr. Jon Epstein, Vice President for Science and Outreach at EcoHealth Alliance, will be speaking on his work on zoonotic disease emergence. Dr. Epstein, a veterinarian and epidemiologist, studies Nipah and Ebola virus, along with SARS, and other diseases that have emerged within Asia and Africa. Along with his colleagues at EcoHealth Alliance, Dr. Epstein works with a consortia of university and NGO partners under USAID’s “Emerging Pandemic Threats” program, designed to establish an early warning system for zoonotic disease emergence. The program studies the diversity of pathogens in wildlife and assesses the risk of spillover into livestock and human populations in the most vulnerable countries around the world.
