Susanne Sokolow is a disease ecologist and veterinarian at Stanford University‘s Hopkins Marine Station and UC Santa Barbara‘s Marine Science Institute. As Executive Director of Stanford’s new Program for Disease Ecology, Health and the Environment, she is working to discover and promote ‘ecological solutions’ that benefit human health and a healthy environment. As part of her research program, she founded The Upstream Alliance: a research initiative joining partners across the globe for reduction of the parasitic disease: schistosomiasis.
“As we increasingly discover the links between human health and the environment, we urgently need joint solutions that protect both.”
