With a focus on multidisciplinary aspects of infectious diseases and environmental health, the symposium will feature distinguished speakers from research, academia, and public health practice. Topics will include current research on factors associated with the burden of emerging diseases of people and wildlife including:
- ecological and climatic drivers
- social and behavioral determinants
- vector ecology and control
- vaccine development and challenges
- public health surveillance and interventions.

What is the purpose of the study?
To evaluate an experimental vaccine for Dengue fever, a disease that affects many parts of the developing world and parts of the United States.
Who is eligible?
1. Men and women at least 18 years and d 45 years of age at time of screening. 2. In good health as determined by medical history, physical examination. 3.

- Is parking provided or reimbursed?
- What tests and procedures are involved?
Procedures/Tests: At screening volunteers will have a complete physical exam, urine pregnancy and urine drug test, blood draw for HIV, Hep B/C and safety labs to make sure they are eligible to participate. If eligible, the second visit will include a vaccine either in one or both arms, depending on which group they are randomized to. They will be asked to return to the clinic 13-15 times for a blood draw and a short physical exam. The doctor will ask if they have had any new symptoms or problems since the last visit and the arm will be checked for any reaction to the vaccine.
Who is the doctor administering the study?
