and wildlife on the transmission of mosquito-borne disease, said Drake. This is a problem that is increasing in importance as urbanization continues to accelerate worldwide.

Using seven years of outbreak data, Drake and his team will test several hypotheses about vector-borne diseases in the built environment. One idea is that the built structure of urban environments causes diseases to seep through the landscape, rather than to spread in waves. Also, Drake will investigate the idea that annual West Nile virus outbreaks correlate with certain patterns in temperature and precipitation. Additionally, Drake aims to determine if a suspected decrease in the severity of the infection in humans relates to the evolution of avirulence in birds.

In America, we have eliminated malaria and we dont have a serious problem with dengue fever, said Drake. Vector-borne diseases were thought to be a minor issue for the developed world. West Nile virus emergence has changed that.
