Many gathered for an opportunity to hear School of Public Health Regents Professor and CIDRAP Director Michael T. Osterholm discuss and read excerpts from his newly published book, “Deadliest Enemy: Our War Against Killer Germs.” Deeply relevant to our world today, “Deadliest Enemy” tackles the enormous challenge of highlighting the gaps in public health preparedness in the face of burgeoning global pandemics and infectious disease outbreaks.
Osterholm’s vast knowledge of epidemiology and infectious disease has made him a world leader in preparing for, reacting to, and preventing outbreaks. In addition to his academic leadership and faculty roles, he consistently serves as an advisor to governments and organizations, and on the front lines as investigative leader on some of the world’s worst infectious disease outbreaks and bioterrorist activities.

“Deadliest Enemy is a lucid and concise account of how the battle against deadly germs is in many ways the most important war of all. It deftly melds authoritative science with a gripping narrative to tell what is arguably the most critical story of our era.”— Peter Bergen, CNN’s National Security Analyst, is the author of United States of Jihad; Investigating America’s Homegrown Terrorists
