EOH Seminar "Persistence of Respiratory Viruses within different Environmental Settings" by Seema S. Lakdawala PhD

Graduate School of Public Health | Department of Environmental and Occupational Health presents:

Persistence of Respiratory Viruses within different Environmental Settings

by Seema S. Lakdawala PhD
Assistant Professor
Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics
University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine

RESEARCH HIGHLIGHT: Dr. Lakdawala’s lab focuses on the mechanisms underlying the airborne transmission of influenza viruses. Given influenza viruses pose a major public health risk from seasonal epidemics and sporadic pandemics, it is critical for understanding the persistence of respiratory viruses in response to different environmental factors. Her lab has established models to study the transmissibility of influenza viruses via the airborne route and examine the role of different therapeutic platforms on limiting the spread of influenza via aerosols. Her long-term research goal is developing a comprehensive surveillance system to determine the pandemic potential of circulating zoonotic influenza viruses, which will be useful in all areas of pandemic preparedness.

Learning from our students/staff/faculty, nationally and internationally known scientists, practitioners and policymakers on issues of environmental, occupational and public health 

The EOH Seminar Series takes place every 1st and 3rd Friday of the month from 1:00pm – 2:00p.m (via Zoom). Through presentations and discussions, we aim to highlight the latest cutting-edge environmental health science research, promote public health, and enhance multidisciplinary collaborations between medical, public health specialists and community.  Moreover, we would like to highlight research from young investigators and our EOH students and fellows. In additional to topics of environmental and occupational health exposures, we will have presentations about social justice and diversity, women and children health, neurological disorders, cell metabolism and stem cells, metal toxicity, respiratory biology, redox biology, microbiology and host defense, and environmental epigenetics. Please stay-tuned!  

If you would like to attend a seminar or receive e-mail notices about future EOH seminar series, please contact Adam Orbell (aorbell@pitt.edu). If you have other questions about our EOH seminar series, please contact Winnie Tang (wat23@pitt.edu) and Bruce Pitt (brucep@pitt.edu).  We look forward to your participation
