NLM Title: Viral forecasting / Nathan Wolfe.
Author: Wolfe, Nathan.
National Institutes of Health (U.S.)
Abstract: In this talk I discuss how novel viruses enter into the human population from animals and go on to become pandemics. I then discuss attempts by my own research group to study this process and attempt to control viruses that have only recently emerged. By creating a global network at the interface of humans and animals we are working to move viral forecasting from a theoretical possibility to a reality.
