Appointees receive enhanced research training and participate in a clinical immersion experience that will enable them to:
- Conduct behavioral research at multiple levels of analysis, using a range of experimental models
- Use multidisciplinary approaches, including physiological, biochemical, molecular and genetic analyses, to address complex problems of clinical and public health importance

On Dec. 31, 2019, the World Health Organization's (WHO) office in China noted a report of cases of "viral pneumonia" on the website of the Wuhan Municipal Health Commission. Earlier that same month, there was another important milestone: at its headquarters in Geneva, the WHO celebrated the 40th anniversary of the confirmation of the eradication of smallpox. As more and more people receive vaccines and with steep declines in the number of COVID-19 cases worldwide, what does the end of this pandemic look like? Will we also win freedom from this virus?
