Hantavirus Talk

September 14, 5:30pm - 7:00pm
Mānoa Campus, AgSci Building

ARCS Honolulu Scientist of the Year Richard Yanagihara will discuss Hantaviruses: A Personal Journey of Discovery and New Begninnings at a free pauhana talk.

Hantaviruses are a relatively newly discovered genre spread by rodents with sometimes fatal consequences to humans.

Yanagihara, a professor in the Department of Tropical Medicine, Medical Microbiology and Pharmacology and director of UH's Pacific Center for Emerging Infectious Disease Research, is considered to be one of the top hantavirus researchers in the world. He studies the appearance of diseases—such as Ebola, measles, hepatitis C and HIV—among populations isolated by virtue of genetics, culture and/or geography.

The talk is free and open to the public, but reservations are requested to ensure adequate seating. Email
