The Center for Global Health Science and Security at Georgetown University, directed by Dr. Rebecca Katz and Dr. Julie Fischer was formally established in September 2016. The Center’s multi-disciplinary team develops evidence for action, providing decision makers with the tools they need for sustainable capacity building to prevent, detect and respond to public health emergencies. The team incorporates expertise in epidemiology, microbiology, virology, animal and human health systems, demography, economics, finance, statistics, and law.
