    Our team of researchers, with extensive experience in the study of infectious diseases, will search through this ANID-funded project for new emerging pathogens that may cause pandemics in the future.

    EPIwild seeks to identify potential "hotspots" where new pathogens could be circulating, and to determine the factors that generate them.

    Our objective

    The goal of the project is to understand the role of anthropogenic land use change as a driver of pathogen emergence within the wildlife interface, training the next generation of researchers who will be faced with preparing for the next pandemic. By predicting pathogen emergence in specific areas based on the degree of habitat fragmentation, we also propose to design surveillance strategies for stakeholders and the general public that will help mitigate disease risk.

    What do we want?

    To understand the role of anthropogenic land use change as a driver of pathogen emergence in wildlife, with the objective of training the next generation of health professionals and researchers to deal with future pandemics by designing surveillance strategies to help mitigate disease risk.

    Why EPIwild?

    It studies emerging pathogens in sentinel species, potentially connecting the interfaces of human health, as well as domestic and wild animals. Allowing early detection of potential pandemics.
