Abstract:

Part of the Great Minds of Medicine series, this program is an extended interview with Dr. Karl Johnson, an infectious disease specialist with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In the 1960s Johnson studied a hemorrhagic fever that had emerged in Bolivia, determining its means of transmission and methods to contain it. Later he confronted the Ebola virus, hantavirus, hemorrhagic fever in the former Soviet Union, lassa fever in Sierra Leone, and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). Dr. Johnson discusses his early work in Bolivia, the causes of emerging infectious diseases, and his concern that biological warfare is a significantly greater threat than nuclear or chemical warfare.
