Major U.S. and global health issues such as the emergence and reemergence of infectious diseases, population ageing, and the health impacts of anthropogenic change cannot be addressed within isolated academic disciplines. Understanding and devising the appropriate policies to address these problems requires an interdisciplinary approach. As a Health & Society Scholar, Dr. Dorelien plans to use such an approach to examine the influence of population aging and its attendant immunosenescence on infectious disease transmission and incidence.
