Peter Daszak

Peter Daszak

Dr. Daszak’s research has been instrumental in identifying and predicting the impact of emerging diseases across the globe. His achievements include identifying the first case of a species extinction due to disease, the discovery of the disease chytridiomycosis as the cause of global amphibian declines, identification of the wildlife reservoir of SARS, identifying the causes of Nipah and Hendra virus emergence, coining the term ‘pathogen pollution’, and producing the first ever global emerging disease ‘hotspots’ map.
