Human respiratory viruses continue to spread in wild chimpanzees

from Lab Manager

Writing recently in the journal Emerging Microbes and Infections, a team led by Tony Goldberg, a University of Wisconsin–Madison professor in the School of Veterinary Medicine and an expert on emerging pathogens in animals, describes two simultaneous outbreaks of respiratory illness in chimpanzees in the wild, one of which was lethal. Goldberg is also associate director for research at UW–Madison’s Global Health Institute. more
