Theory

The emergence, reemergence, and spread of infectious diseases among animals and humans are extraordinarily complex global problems. Infectious diseases affect not only the realm of public health and medicine, but also evolutionary biology, environmental sciences, public policy and social sciences, mathematics and statistics, and computer science and health information technologies. Meaningful discovery and solutions are likely to emerge at the interface of disciplines. Moreover, interactions among scientists and policy makers are crucial to translate research discoveries into applications.
