I had the opportunity to speak with the esteemed Maryn McKenna about the nature of SARS-CoV-2 transmission between humans and animals. Among other things, we discussed the importance of better understanding wildlife health as a means of enhancing our understanding and protecting the health of ecosystems, animals, and humans alike.
Along with several other amazing women in STEM, I spoke with Ellen Neff at Nature Lab Animal about the myriad of ways researchers analyze disease transmission risk at the human-animal interface. I was able to discuss our recent work studying SARS-CoV-2 transmission in deer mice and some of the nuances of studying pathogenesis and viral susceptibility in less commonly studied species (like bats and other wildlife!)
