Our gaping blind spot in the fight against pandemics

Experience, a magazine that shares stories about the intersection of technology and humanity, published an article about infectious diseases in poor, remote regions can wreak havoc for years without any attention. The article features CSGS Professor Richard Wamai, who speaks to the “10-90” gap in disease research and drug development: 90 percent of the funds go to diseases that affect about 10 percent of the world’s population. Also featured is Michael Pollastri, Professor of Chemistry and Biology at Northeastern.
