  • Overview

    Understanding the mechanisms through which animal viruses mutate and emerge as human pathogens helps us to predict and restrict the impact of natural pandemics and intentionally spawned virulent diseases. Toward this end, the cultivation of complex synthetic viruses is a promising area of research. Looking into the future, will these efforts allow us to subdue viruses in animals before they emerge in humans? In the context of the work of his research team to synthesize a bat coronavirus to better understand the origins of the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) outbreak in 2003, Dr. Mark Denison, professor of pediatrics and associate professor of microbiology and immunology at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, explores this question with host Dr. Mark Nolan Hill.
