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 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.
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.
A UF professor contributes to studies exploring the power and limitations of tools to predict the next wildlife pathogen capable of seeding a pandemic.
New research published in Science shows that as populations of people gain immunity to dengue, it drives evolutionary pressures that select for viral evolution—and newly susceptible hosts.
Two UF researchers are helping to determine if spreading a bacteria among mosquitoes can suppress the incidence of dengue infections in people.
UF researchers report an uncommon instance of a past infection in an adult by a dog coronavirus strain that also contained genetic features of a cat coronavirus.
