Outsmarting Emerging Pathogens in an Interconnected World: Kristian Andersen, PhD

Presented: April 15, 2020

At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Kristian Andersen, PhD, a genomic epidemiologist, was one of the first to begin tracing the origins and spread of the novel coronavirus based on public genome sequencing data. In this virtual Front Row Series, Andersen will share unique insights on how the COVID-19 pandemic emerged and spread around the world, as well as what science tells us has worked and not worked to mitigate the public health crisis. He’ll discuss how the lessons learned from the current pandemic and other infectious disease epidemics can help us prepare for future outbreaks.
