Tatiana Vishnivetskaya attends the Microbial Community Structure and Biodiversity of Permafrost Workshop

Tatiana Vishnivetskaya gave an invited talk at the Microbial Community Structure and Biodiversity of Permafrost Workshop on “Understanding and Responding to Global Health Security Risks from Microbial Threats in the Arctic”, held in Hannover, Germany, November 6-7, 2019. This workshop brought together an interdisciplinary, international group of researchers and public health officials to explore what is known and what critical knowledge gaps remain regarding existing and possible future risks of harmful infectious agents emerging from thawing permafrost and ice in polar climates. The Workshop aimed to provide a helpful state-of-the-science overview and information to help frame new actions that advance research, surveillance, and response capacity.
