Infectious Disease and Vaccine Center, Jordan

Pathobiology professors Steven Geary and Steven Szczepanek, along with research associate Edan Tulman, have been traveling to the country of Jordan to foster their collaboration with the Infectious Disease and Vaccine Center in Amman. The initial project will focus on the identification of pathogens in waste-water from Syrian refugee camps, as well as the identification of bio-threat agents obtained from mice and bats in the region, both using meta-genomics approaches.
