Humans and animals are rarely infected with a single disease-causing organism at any one time; simultaneous infections are the norm. Historically, infectious diseases have been studied one at a time.
Since most hosts are routinely infected by more than one type of parasite, concurrent infection (or co-infection) has emerged as a key challenge for wildlife, veterinary, and human health. Interactions between parasites co-occurring within a single host have profound effects on infection outcomes ranging from disease severity and progression within individual hosts to pat-terns of disease spread across populations.
Dr. Ezenwa will discuss the study of concurrent infection and how this per-spective is providing new insight into the spread and impact of infectious diseases.
