This journal club explores recently published primary research articles that investigate recent findings in zoonotic diseases with a multidisciplinary approach, or ‘medical zoology.’ Zoonotic diseases are those originating and/or being maintained in natural animal populations, but which occasionally spill over into human populations. These will likely involve infectious organisms that have a transmission cycle involving another animal species. Course content consists of asynchronous reading of primary literature and coming together as a group to discuss synchronously. Each week, a student volunteer will choose an article, introduce the background of the study, and lead discussion.
