Dr. Sampson looks at the underlying features of a “zooonotic” disease. She then discusses how increasing globalization has interwoven with zoonoses to produce widespread outbreaks of Influenza, SARS, Nipah Virus, and Ebola virus disease. Among the most notable of the Zoonotic diseases of the last several decades is HIV, and she presents a fascinating review of how this retrovirus originated from primates and then spread around the world in only a relatively short period of time.
