Welcome to the Biofluids and
Global Health Lab!
Unresolved challenges related to global health have major impacts on the international community, as was made abundantly apparent in recent months due to the emergence of the novel SARS-CoV-2 virus. The emergence of novel strains as well as the modification of the range and transmission patterns of a number of important directly-transmitted and vector-borne diseases due to climate change necessitates the ability to rapidly model population-level transmission dynamics, as well as elucidate the biological aspects of within-host pathogenesis in order to develop testing and treatment methods. Our mission is to develop innovative engineering techniques, modeling methods, and policy tools to tackle problems ranging from molecular to global scales that pose important challenges to global health.
