Really outstanding work this summer by Berkeley's Dr. Qu Cheng, Audrey Webb, and Charles Li critically examining the architecture of the largest infectious disease surveillance system in the world with partners at China CDC @UCBerkeleyCGPH @UCBerkeleySPH @CENDUCBerkeley pic.twitter.com/9okFptNLpf— Justin Remais (@Justin_Remais) August 18, 2018
Published today in @TheLancet: an extraordinary and ambitious collaboration with @Tsinghua_Uni featuring @UCBerkeleySPH's Dr. Qu Cheng and many others: cities lie at the nexus of global development, health inequities, environmental exposures, and population health. #HealthyCities https://t.co/7TZ6AQGFc1— Justin Remais (@Justin_Remais) April 18, 2018

Our research on the environmental and social forces that drive the dynamics of infectious diseases was profiled in the COEH Bridges issue for summer 2016, including details on the work led by group members Phil Collender and Chris Hoover,
Climate change mitigation strategies, including efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, are not specifically designed to improve human health but can potentially do so. In our manuscript in the May 2014 issue of EHP with collaborators Jeremy Hess, Kris Ebi, Anil Markandya, John Balbus, Andy Haines and others, we critically examine modeling approaches for estimating health co-benefits of GHG mitigation, and highlight model improvements that could help assess which mitigation strategies are the most promising for both climate and human health (May 2014).
See also the associated EHP Science Selections news item.
Our paper on the convergence of non-communicable and infectious diseases in low- and middle-income countries, including group member Lulu Tian, was critically discussed by three invited commentaries in the most recent issue of the International Journal of Epidemiology. The three commentators expanded on our discussion of infection-related cancers, the links between TB, diabetes and smoking, and the social causes of disease (April 2013).
