Predicting Human Disease Risk from Animal-Borne Pathogens

This is a past event.

The Alabama Regional Center for Infection Prevention and Control Training and Technical Assistance presents “Predicting human disease risk from animal-borne pathogens.” In this webinar, Dr. Barbara Han, a disease ecologist at the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies, will explore recent approaches that combine knowledge about animal ecology with machine learning and artificial intelligence tools to make predictions about where and from which species the risks of zoonotic outbreaks are greatest. Examples will emphasize the ongoing spillback transmission of SARS-CoV-2 from humans to animals, and the risk of establishing new viral reservoirs of COVID-19; predicting wild reservoirs of bat-borne filoviruses (Ebola, Marburg) and rodent-borne pathogens such as monkeypox.
