Campus Talk - "No Small Threat"

20 September 2011


The Pacific Center for Emerging Infectious Diseases Research has been featured as a story-of-the-week on Campus Talk. This article will be included in a magazine-type publication, to be distributed to international media at the upcoming Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) meeting in Honolulu on November 12-20, 2011. Hawaii’s strategic location as a prominent international port, and its geographic proximity and strong ties to institutions within Asia and the Pacific, provide a unique setting from which to monitor the emergence and spread of newly recognized infectious diseases and to investigate outbreaks of well-known microbial infections of regional concern and global importance.
