CLAS Lecture Series: Zika, Dengue and Other Arboviruses, Insect Vectors and How to Control Them

Dr. Raul Andino, Professor, Department of Microbiology and Immunology at UCSF, will discuss emerging and reemerging epidemics in Latin America; what we know and what we don’t know, and, based on this knowledge, what interventions are available or need to be developed to control them.
Dr. Andino is professor of microbiology and immunology at the University of California, San Francisco, where he specializes in RNA viruses, with focus on molecular biology, immunology and evolutionary biology. His research includes mechanisms of replication, antiviral RNAi and adaptation. He is interested in the evolution of the immune system and in the role of virus population diversity in pathogenesis. Understanding the rules that control host and virus evolution has important implications for vaccine development and antivirals.
