Within 1 to 3 business days after ordering the webinar, you will be sent an email with a link to register and view the webinar on the GoToWebinar website.


This live webinar will describe the development of a macaque model of highly pathogenic avian influenza, describe how aerobiology, radiotelemetry, and plethysmography were instrumental in creating this model, and how this model can be used to evaluate potential vaccines. refinements made to the model that have improved its utility in assessing potential vaccines and treatments will be discussed. A live questions and answer session will occur at the end of the webinar.

This program has been RACE approved for 1 hour of continuing education credit in jurisdictions which recognize RACE approval.

Presenter: Douglas Reed, PhD

Learning Objectives:

  • Brief review of the ongoing H5N1 pandemic and the risk of ongoing spillover events that could lead to the next human pandemic.
  • Importance of the macaque animal model to study H5N1 disease pathogenesis, vaccines, and treatments.
  • Overview of aerobiology and radiotelemetry and their utility in the study of infectious disease.
