On the Origin of Epidemics

Speaker:
Professor Edward Holmes

How do epidemics start and spread in human populations? Can we predict what epidemics will occur next?

These fundamental questions will be addressed by examining how evolving RNA viruses are able to jump species boundaries and emerge in humans, sometimes with devastating effects. As case studies of the origins and spread of influenza and dengue, both of which are of great public health importance in Australia, will be considered in detail.
