COVID-19 has devastated our global community. The worst part? It’s likely to happen again – soon. While the world is rightly focused on developing and distributing vaccines, managing the economic fallout of COVID-19, and bolstering health systems to manage rising cases, the rate of zoonotic disease outbreaks has been increasing steadily as we continue to encroach upon the natural world. It is only a matter of time before we experience another COVID-19.
But we can stop this from happening – if we understand the root causes of most emerging infectious diseases and invest in preventing pandemics at the source.
Our work aims to save lives by preventing the spillover of zoonotic viruses from animals to humans - well before they can become global pandemics, regional / national epidemics, or even localized outbreaks.
