Cross-Species Explorations of Emerging Viruses and Their Hosts



11:00 AM-12:00 PM

The QBI & Gladstone Institutes Infectious Disease and Human Health Seminar Series presents Dr. Angela Rasmussen, Principal Research Scientist at the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization (VIDO) and Adjunct Professor at the University of Saskatchewan, as well Adjunct Professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolution at Stony Brook University.

Dr. Rasmussen's research focuses on the role of the host in virus susceptibility and pathogenesis, with a particular interest in emerging viruses that are or have the potential to be major threats to global health, such as avian influenza virus, dengue virus, Ebola virus, mpox (monkeypox) virus, MERS-CoV, and SARS-CoV-2. Her work combines classical experimental virology and animal models with systems biology approaches to study the global response to infection and how that contributes to pathogenesis or protection from emerging pathogens.
