Bodies, Environments, and the Spread of Disease

Editor Brandy Schillace interviews Annamaria Carusi, PhD.

Dr. Annamaria Carusi, previously faculty in medical humanities, left academe to work as a private consultant on the social dimensions of science and innovation, especially focusing on how to build bridges between biomedicine and public health policy. In today’s podcast, Dr. Carusi discusses the way humans and environments interact, and how science and social policy are pushing the biomedical model to take a wider view of disease vectors. This long view helps us answer questions like how does pollution affect the microbiome? And, more urgently, how do diseases like coronavirus get their start?
