Biodiversity, Ecology, and Global Change


 “Acute Infectious Diseases in Space and Time”

Bryan Grenfell, Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and Public Affairs, Woodrow Wilson School, Princeton University

Grenfell explores the spatiotemporal dynamics of acute infectious diseases under the influence of secular demographic change and the evolutionary and control implications of immune escape. Bryan Grenfell is a population biologist, focusing in particular on the dynamics and control of infectious. He combines the development of theory with analyses of empirical data sets from a range of diseases, including measles, rotavirus and influenza. Originally trained as a zoologist, Grenfell has worked on the dynamics of epidemics since 1980. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of London and a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

The Biodiversity, Ecology, and Global Change lecture series is sponsored by the Harvard University Center for the Environment with generous support from Bank of America. 

This lecture is free and open to the public. A reception will follow in the Sherman Fairchild lobby.
