CLAREMONT, Calif., Sept. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Jose Ignacio Santos, an international expert from Mexico on infectious disease, pediatrics and public health, will speak as the 2011 Simon Ramo Distinguished Lecturer on Sept. 30 at Keck Graduate Institute, an event co-hosted by Claremont Graduate University.

Santos' talk will be on "Emerging, Reemerging and New Transmissible Infectious Diseases."

"We are honored and delighted that Dr. Santos will provide the Simon Ramo lecture this year," said Sheldon M. Schuster, PhD, KGI's president. "He has been a force in public health reforms that have impacted millions of people in Latin America and around the globe, and we look forward to hearing his insights on what the scientific and medical communities must prepare for with respect to infectious diseases."

Santos currently serves as the Professor of Experimental Medicine and Infectious Diseases at the School of Medicine for Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (National Autonomous University of Mexico).

Santos has spent 20 years working on public and global health. His efforts include serving on the Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE) in Vaccines and Immunization of the World Health Organization and as a board member of the Pediatric Dengue Vaccine Initiative (Seoul, Korea).

He currently serves on the board of trustees of the International Center for Diarrheal Research in Dhaka, Bangladesh, and on the Pan-American Health and Education Foundation.

Prior to joining Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico, Santos served as the general director of Hospital Infantil de Mexico Federico Gomez, the oldest and one of the foremost pediatric academic institutions in the Western Hemisphere and one of Mexico's National Institutes of Health. From 1997-2004, he was director of Mexico's National Infant and Adolescent Health Program and technical secretary of the government's immunization program.
