In the past 50 years, many previously unknown infectious diseases have emerged, while others have reemerged at an unprecedented rate. Despite tremendous strides in science, technology, and medical advances, and primary prevention strategies, infectious disease continue to plague humanity. This course will feature the global challenges posed by select pathogens. To do this, we will explore pandemics through a few different lenses.
