  1. 1. Global Health Education Consortium From Discovery to Delivery: Benchwork to Global Health Jerry Cangelosi BioAffinity Consulting Seattle Biomedical Research Institute Departments of Global Health and Epidemiology University of Washington [email_address] 256-7313 Research interests: Molecular diagnosis of infectious disease Molecular epidemiology of infectious disease
  2. 2. American Red Cross <ul><li>Tuberculosis (TB) </li></ul><ul><li>Airborne transmission </li></ul><ul><li>7+ million cases, 2+ million deaths per year </li></ul><ul><li>Many people latently infected </li></ul><ul><li>Limited vaccine (BCG) </li></ul><ul><li>Treatment long and difficult </li></ul><ul><li>Poorest countries have highest incidence </li></ul>
  3. 3. TB and homelessness: Tough all over National incidence (cases per 100,000 population; 2004) 1 U.S.A. 4.9 Hungary 24.5 Extrapolated incidence among the homeless (cases per 100,000; 2004) Seattle ~400 2 Budapest ~700 3 1 WHO 2 Public Health – Seattle & King County 3 National Korányi Institute for Tuberculosis and Respiratory Medicine, Budapest
