What do the Zika virus, dengue, and yellow fever all have in common? They are all mosquito-borne diseases that a team of UW scientists are working to eliminate through studying the host-pathogen interaction.

Join the Wisconsin Alumni Association at the Fluno Center on Friday, September 16th to hear from top UW researcher and alumni Jorge Osorio MS’88, PhD’96. Osorio, who is also an associate professor of pathobiological sciences and veterinary medicine, will discuss the emergence of Zika and other viruses, promising vaccination research, and ongoing challenges encountered when studying infectious diseases.
