and for them to develop strategies to help health professionals and policy-makers within and beyond the U.K. to combat existing and emerging diseases."

NSF-NIH ECOLOGY AND EVOLUTION OF INFECTIOUS DISEASE (EEID) AWARDS - 2011

Title: Biological and human dimensions of primate retroviral transmission
PI: Tony Goldberg, University of Wisconsin - Madison
Summary: To better understand how HIV spread from its origin in monkey populations to humans, researchers will study similar viruses currently circulating among wild monkeys in Uganda. By combining data from both the biological and social sciences, this project will focus on the transmission within and between wild animal species and what human social factors--such as awareness, beliefs and behaviors--increase the likelihood of transmission from animals to people.

Title: The effect of sociality on transmission and spread of a multi-host pathogen
PI: Thomas Kunz, Boston University
Summary: The recent emergence of a fungal disease known as white-nose syndrome has devastated hibernating bat populations across eastern North America. This research will investigate how social behavior among bats (such as group size and mixing patterns) influences the spread of the fungal pathogen at local, regional and continental scales.

Title: Impact, ecology and social determinants of bacterial zoonoses in northern Tanzania
PI: John Crump, Duke University
Summary: This project will examine the environmental and social factors that set the stage for the transmission of bacterial diseases from livestock to humans. Scientists will focus on three distinct livestock-owning communities in Tanzania to quantify transmission rates and examine the impact of potential control strategies. They will investigate the factors that affect the transmission of bacterial diseases that cause fever in Tanzania, including those that relate to Leptospirosis (Weil's disease) to develop better
