UW-Madison alumnus Dr. Ryan Wallace, a veterinary epidemiologist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, will discuss his work with rabies control around the world. His talk is “Few Poisons More Deadly Than a Mad Dog’s Tooth: Current perspectives on the global effort for rabies control.”
Wallace joined the CDC Rabies Program in 2012, training for two years with the Epidemic Intelligence Service. He has led numerous domestic and internation rabies investigations pertaining to both human rabies deaths and animal disease outbreaks. He spends the majority of his time focusing on the implementation of zoonotic disease surveillance systems in developing countries, and improving our understanding of how interspecies relationships impact the spread of rabies.
Wallace earned his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at UW-Madison.
