In the midst of a global health emergency, many look to researchers and health care providers to develop and administer treatments or vaccines to curtail the spread of infectious diseases. For some diseases, development of such resources prior to an outbreak is hindered due to lack of prior risk, public interest, and/or funding. The onset of an outbreak, however, can spark a sudden increase in efforts to address previously understudied pathogens, as was the case with Zika virus (ZIKV).

ZIKV is a mosquito-borne flavivirus that was identified in 1947, but until recently, it was thought to be associated with only mild illness. In recent years, it has become...

Most students begin graduate school planning to pursue a traditional academic career path. As the years pass, some maintain this desire, while others explore so-called “alternative” careers to identify the path that excites them. Yet there are a few students, including CAMB alumna Margaret Fleetwood (DSRB), who plan from the beginning to pursue an “alternative,” non-research career.

When Margaret began graduate school in 2005, she estimated that 98% of her peers ostensibly planned to complete academic postdoctoral fellowships and continue toward tenure-track faculty positions. Margaret, however, knew that she wanted to enter the field of intellectual prope...

Animal models of disease are crucial to understanding disease progression in humans. In a recent article published in the American Journal of Primatology, Hannah Barbian (pictured below), a fifth-year MVP student in Beatrice Hahn’s lab, exemplified this concept. The Hahn lab researches the disease progression and evolution of simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). A long-standing collaboration with the Jane Goodall Institute and Gombe National Park in Tanzania has supplied the lab with a breadth of chimpanzee samples. The Hahn lab previously used chimpanzee samples to demonstrate that HIV-1, the etiologic agent of the...
