A Mailman study of New York City mice found that they harbor multiple pathogenic bacteria, including some with an array of antimicrobial resistance genes.
Mailman scientists have developed a system that accurately predicts—six weeks in advance—the geographic spread of seasonal influenza in the United States.
A type of ultraviolet light that is harmless to humans could be a new weapon against the spread of flu virus in public spaces.
Across the country, the worst of the flu season will be over by early February, according to a computer model developed by Mailman School scientists.
A study that identifies a litany of mutations that allow the malaria-causing parasite to become resistant to drugs has also identified potential new ways to kill the parasite.
At TED 2017, CUMC radiation scientist David Brenner discussed his work using physics to create a new, potentially life-saving weapon against drug-resistant microbes.
