Title 2005 Robert H. Ebert Memorial Lecture Emerging and Re-emerging Infectious Diseases: The Perpetual Challenge
Author Anthony S. Fauci

I now would like to discuss some of the lessons we have learned as we combat infectious diseases and how the next generation of physicians and researchers might build on our experience as they face the challenge of outwitting the microbes that will continue to plague mankind.

What do I mean by a newly emerging disease? A newly emerging disease is a disease that has never been recognized before. HIV/AIDS is a newly emerging disease, as is severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), Nipah virus encephalitis, and variant Creutzfeld-Jakob disease (vCJD).
