    A Deep Conversation with Rita Colwell

    A Deep Conversation with Rita Colwell

    Rita Colwell discusses her pioneering research that led to the discovery of how cholera survives between epidemics. During an open question and answer session, she addresses themes and issues covered in her recently published book, “A Lab of One’s Own—One Woman’s Personal Journey Through Sexism in Science.” Considered a science book for the #MeToo era, Colwell offers an astute diagnosis of how to fix the problem of sexism in science—and a celebration of the women pushing back.

    Population Health Risks of a Changing Climate

    Population Health Risks of a Changing Climate

    Climate change affects the health of all Americans. The adverse health consequences are projected to worsen with additional climate change. Kristie Ebi, University of Washington, explains that proactive adaptation policies and programs reduce the risks and impacts from climate-sensitive health outcomes and from disruptions in healthcare services. Additional benefits to health arise from explicitly accounting for climate change risks in infrastructure planning and urban design.

    Testing...Testing: Responding to the COVID-19 Pandemic

    COVID-19 has reshaped our world and impacted communities across the globe. UCSB virologist Carolina Arias relates the story of how molecular biology, virology and a lot of swabs helped us respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Her UCSB department chose to focus on diagnostics because they knew testing was essential to understand virus transmission and develop control strategies.
