Meng contributes to 2020 World Knowledge Forum
June 7, 2020
“Prevent Future Pandemics by Addressing Root Cause” by X.J. Meng, University Distinguished Professor of Molecular Virology in the Department of Biomedical Sciences and Pathobiology, has been featured as part of a pre-event for the 2020 World Knowledge Forum, for which he is an invited speaker.
“Scientists have been warning for years that a pandemic like this is destined to happen — it is just a matter of time,” Meng writes. “While much of the focus in the world today is on the immediate problem, COVID-19, which is rightly so in order to save lives, we as a society will have to take a long and deep look at the root cause of the problem and seriously do something about it to prevent future pandemics.”
