With innovation in public health urgently needed around the world, the creation of our school could not have been more timely. Thanks to each one of you for your contributions to our school; our collective efforts are needed now more than ever.

"People have been saying that's an engineered virus. And it's not. And we know that by looking at the genetic information, looking at the code. And the code tells you a lot." 

Dr. Elodie Ghedin studies the genome of the virus in her lab at New York University.
