UF medical geographer Sadie Ryan makes the case that we need to better study human-to-wildlife viral transmission factors to better understand "spillback" events. How do we know when spillback will threaten species conservation — or fuel the next pandemic?
UF students and researchers address the links between intestinal pathogens, livestock, and children’s gut health.
UF mathematician Burton Singer contributed to a conceptual framework that can link physiological factors related to stress with negative health outcomes following natural disasters.
UF researchers use molecular tools to detect dengue virus and West Nile virus in southeastern Florida and inform mosquito control in real time.
UF researchers track COVID-19 trends in an island community’s wastewater. The approach has broad implications as a public health surveillance tool.
From land to sea, EPI’s Research Day keynote talks featured recent leaps in pathogen research affecting people and the aquatic animal source foods we consume.
Feeling ready for COVID to END-emic already? So are we. A UF professor of biostatistics, Ira Longini, shares his thoughts on where the pandemic is headed and what going endemic may look like.
A UF mathematician collaborated on a model showing that travel between European countries can be done safely with a short isolation time and a negative test upon exit.
As COVID-19 edges from pandemic to endemic status, there is a growing need for antiviral therapies. A team of UF researchers has identified dozens of therapeutic targets that could feed the drug development pipeline.
UF researchers created a model projecting how various omicron-driven surge scenarios may unfold in Florida over the next few months.
