Meetup Description: Topic:
Please join us on Saturday, November 29th, 7 PM at Manuel's Tavern to learn about the ecology of infectious disease from Emory University's Uriel Kitron, Professor and Chair of the Environmental Studies Department. Learn more about Uriel and his research at http://www.envs.emory...
Dr. Kitron's research interest is the eco-epidemiology of infectious diseases, with an emphasis on tropical and emerging diseases such as dengue, Chagas disease, malaria, schistosomiasis and West Nile virus. His researchers study the ecology of the insect vectors and the mammalian reservoir hosts of the diseases. In addition to field work his researchers use geographic information systems (GIS) and remote sensing to gather and manage environmental data that can explain the spatial distribution of disease and vectors, and assess risk of transmission.
His research is funded by NIH, NSF and CDC include large-scale collaborative studies international studies of malaria and schistosomiasis in Kenya, Chagas disease in Argentina and dengue in Peru, and of West Nile virus and Lyme disease in the US.
