The Ecology of the Great Pandemics [Grad]

In this course we examine principles of the ecology of infectious disease in light of three pandemics: the 1918 influenza pandemic, the HIV/AIDS pandemic, and the COVID-19 pandemic. The course covers principles of zooneses, disease emergence, herd immunity, basic vaccinology, and other fundamental concepts. It also focuses on social and cultural factors that fomented these pandemics.
