Opinionated Science: Predicting the Next Pandemic


In this episode of Opinionated Science, we will discuss the world of infectious diseases with Senior Research Associate at the University of Cambridge, Freya Jephcott.  

Freya’s work is primarily concerned with the effectiveness of outbreak response systems in resource-limited settings, and their management in outbreaks of uncertain aetiology. In addition to this, Freya also participates in applied and policy work on complex health emergencies with Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

Lucy Lawrence will be speaking with Freya to explore how scientists can predict an outbreak of an emerging disease, what happens when things go wrong as well as looking to the future to see where the future of the space is heading.

Opinionated Science is Technology Networks’ homemade podcast, where our team of scientists-turned-journalists cut out the chewy jargon and serve up slices of the most fascinating stories from the world of science.
