Daszak is the executive director of the Consortium for Conservation Medicine. The program is designed to study the environmental changes brought on by humans and the links between animal, human and ecosystem health. The consortium is interested in finding out how infectious diseases like West Nile virus, malaria and other emerging diseases move between populations, or depend on environmental conditions.
