CREATE-NEO: Barbara A. Han, PhD

Barbara Han_Cary_Institute_2 Dr. Barbara Han is a disease ecologist at the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies (NY). She completed a B.S. in Natural Science at Pepperdine University, and a PhD in Zoology at Oregon State University. During her PhD, she also spent a year as a Fulbright Fellow in Caracas, Venezuela. Dr. Han went on to complete consecutive postdoctoral fellowships in biological informatics (sponsored by NSF) and machine learning (sponsored by NIH) at the University of Georgia, Odum School of Ecology. Her research program at the Cary Institute uses machine learning, deep learning, ecoinformatics and dynamical modeling approaches with the goal to generate actionable predictions about zoonotic spillover and disease transmission in human and animal species.

The Centers for Research in Emerging Infectious Disease (CREID) is a coordinated network with centers in regions around the globe where emerging and re-emerging infectious disease outbreaks are likely to occur. Multidisciplinary teams of investigators will conduct pathogen/host surveillance, study pathogen transmission, pathogenesis and immunologic responses in the host, and will develop reagents and diagnostic assays for improved detection for important emerging pathogens and their vectors.

NIAID launched the CREID Network in 2020.This website is run by CREATE-NEO, a member of the CREID Network independent of NIH/NIAID.
