This exciting session of Grand Rounds focused on rapid identification of emerging infectious diseases. As our world increases in interconnectivity of both technology and people, the rapid identification of emerging infectious diseases becomes more important for disease treatment, control, and prevention.

Pathologists and medical examiners are often among the first healthcare workers to encounter infectious disease outbreaks. This session demonstrated their critical role in surveillance for and rapid response to emerging infectious diseases. CDC plays an ongoing role in the laboratory diagnosis of infectious illnesses, discovery of new agents, and it collaborates 24/7 with state, local, and international partners in order to track emerging pathogens to explain the unexplained.
