Bioterrorism and Emerging Infectious Diseases: Preparedness and Response

The “Bioterrorism and Emerging Infectious Diseases: Preparedness and Response” lecture series is back this fall (2021). This lecture series, which doubles as a pass/fail elective course for medical and graduate students (GS07 1011), is a series of diverse 50-min presentations that address a wide range of topics including the biology of threat organisms, vaccine and therapeutic development, public health, public policy, safety, and more. Topics and speakers vary from year to year, but this year’s lineup includes many great additions related to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Lectures will be offered in a hybrid format on Mondays at noon. Students, faculty, and staff may attend in-person at the McGovern Medical School Building or virtually via WebEx.

The schedule for Fall 2021 can be found here.

The course director for this lecture series is Theresa Koehler, PhD.
