Over the past several years, the global emergence of infectious disease outbreaks has revealed that new approaches to fight and prevent the spread of dangerous pathogens are urgently needed.
The Chan Zuckerberg Biohub (CZ Biohub), a center focused on discovering and developing new technologies that will allow clinicians to manage, cure or prevent disease, has created a new project to address the urgent need for new strategies to protect against infectious disease. The Infectious Disease Initiative is a project focused on using and developing the most advanced technologies to support the global fight against infectious disease. Its main goals involve detecting, responding to, treating and preventing infectious disease.
