Free Public Panels: Governance in an Emerging New World | Stanford
The changing environment is introducing new health risks and challenges alongside an increasingly interconnected world. Extreme weather events and warming climates encourage infectious diseases and pandemics to spread, while potentially disrupting ecosystem services and “supply chains” that today’s economies rely upon.
Panelists will discuss the health and social consequences of climate change and how new technologies enable us to mitigate their effects.
Moderated by Lucy Shapiro, professor of developmental biology at Stanford University and director of the Beckman Center for Molecular & Genetic Medicine
- Milana Boukhman Trounce, Stanford emergency medicine department and director of Stanford biosecurity and infectious disease disaster response
- Kari Nadeau, professor of pediatrics at Stanford University and director of the Sean Parker Center for Allergy and Asthma Research
- Stephen Quake, professor of bioengineering and of applied physics at Stanford University and co-president of the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub
