Title: "Of Barriers and Viruses: Investigating Mechanisms Used by Viral Pathogens to Trigger Vascular Leak, Pathogenesis, and Promote Viral Dissemination"

By: Scott Biering, University of California, San Diego

“Impact of phages on cholera and their use in preventing infection”

Phages play major roles in the ecology and evolution of bacteria, including many human pathogens. We found that cholera patients often shed stools with high titers of one of three species of  phages. We provide evidence that these three phages prey extensively on V. cholerae within the human gastrointestinal tract, and impact the infection, dissemination, transmission and evolution of V. cholerae...

"Functional genomics and phage therapy for antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections"

Phage therapy is a new therapeutic approach for treating antibiotic-resistant infections. Dr. Van Tyne will describe ongoing efforts in her lab to offer phage therapy to patients with resistant infections, and to study what happens to patients that receive this experimental therapy....

Title: "Immune-Mediated Mechanisms of Tissue Adaptation and Maladaptation"

By: Shruti Naik, NYU Grossman School of Medicine

Artificial intelligence is a broad and growing discipline that touches many facets of everyday life for humans and is more recently emerging in veterinary medicine through topics like companion animal health, population medicine and zoonotic diseases, and digital agriculture and food sustainability. While there has been considerable growth in the use of AI in human medicine, to date, there has been no concerted effort to bring veterinarians practitioners and AI researchers together and share knowledge. This symposium, the first of its kind, will provide a forum for veterinarians, computer...

"The aldehyde hypothesis”

Mycobacterium tuberculosis, a human-exclusive pathogen, is arguably the deadliest microbe on the planet. While SARS-CoV-2 killed more people than M. tuberculosis for a year or two, it is estimated M. tuberculosishas killed 1-2 million people yearly for millennia. The long coexistence of this bacterial species with humans has likely resulted in the selection of host and pathogen populations that prevent either's extinction. We propose...

Most existing and emerging infectious diseases have their origin in animal populations. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic the need to understand the cause and impacts of wildlife diseases, as well as how to manage them, has only become increasingly salient.   

Join us for a live, hybrid Chats in the Stacks book talk with Robin Radcliffe, associate professor of practice in Wildlife and Conservation Medicine in the Veterinary School, and David Jessup, former senior...

"Pathogenesis of enteric fever"

Salmonella Typhi and Paratyphi cause a prolonged illness known as enteric fever, whereas other Salmonella serovars cause gastroenteritis.  Emergent multidrug resistance has increased the challenge posed by Salmonella infections, particularly in Asia and Africa.  This presentation will describe new insights into pathogenic mechanisms of S. Typhi and S. Paratyphi A that distinguish them from nontyphoidal Salmonella serovars....
