SFI External Professor Marc Lipsitch has become a “critical voice on biosafety” over the last few months as he has called for greater scrutiny of experiments involving dangerous flu strains.
Lipsitch directs the Center for Communicable Disease Dynamics at the Harvard School of Public Health.
“Just learning good science is not a justification for putting life and health at risk,” Lipsitch said in an September interview with the BBC World Service Discovery podcast.
Lipsitch has also recently commented about the difficulty of obtaining accurate statistics for Ebola’s fatality rate.
