Swine Flu and the Next Pandemic with Palese, Worobey, Bloom, Koplan and Hoffman


Bigthink.com has posted a 45 minute panel discussion on swine flu and the next pandemic. Moderator and editorial chairman for Bigthink.com, Paul Hoffman prefaces the discussion by saying:

"The reason we are here today is of course to discuss swine flu, and understand what the latest thinking is about whether it’s a threat to public health, to understand what we learned from it, meaning what medical scientists have learned from it, what our public health system has learned from it. So we will ever be more prepared when we have the next public health crisis."

The event featured the following academics:

Michael Worobey - Ecologist and Evolutionary Biologist, University of Arizona
Barry Bloom - Professor of Public Health, Harvard University
Jeff Koplan - Vice President for Global Health, Emory University
Peter Palese - Chairman, Dept. of Microbiology, Mt. Sinai Medical Center

Note: The first segment with Peter Palese was already posted on MicrobeWorld. This video also includes a presentation by Michael Worobey and a panel discussion with the other scientists mentioned above.
