Emerging Infectious Diseases: The Unseen Threat
May 6, 2005

Infectious diseases are evolving rapidly in the modern world due to microbial adaptation, increased travel and commerce, a breakdown of public heath measures and a growing population. Practical and ethical issues arise from the need to ration care when these diseases -- such as SARS or the avian flu -- create a public-health crisis. During this year's Honors Day Science Symposium, three renowned experts will discuss the new approaches required to detect and manage emerging infectious diseases and the unseen threat these diseases represent.
