About this talk
In the last century, humanity's successful eradication of smallpox shows that major victories against deadly pandemics are possible. And it's a good thing too, because global catastrophic biological risks, or GCBRs, have the potential to be even worse. In this talk, Dr. Crystal Watson of the Center for Health Security at Johns Hopkins discusses GCBRs, the new field of study around them, and what effective altruists can do to aid in the fight.
