Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic has reshaped many assumptions about capacities for preparedness and response to infectious disease threats, and the overall concept of global health security. Current international frameworks that seek to prevent the international spread of disease, and limit its impact on travel and trade, have been accused of falling short. The World Health Organization itself is facing perhaps its greatest existential and financial challenge since its inception in 1948. Is this criticism of global frameworks and institutions warranted, or are they being used as scapegoats to deflect from the failures of national leaders to take decisive, evidence-based action? In this presentation, I review the history of international frameworks for infectious disease control, placing their objectives and intents against the current backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic. Through this lens, and taking into account the highly dynamic global epidemiological situation, we will discuss the extent to which the current structures for international cooperation and coordination for infectious disease response are sufficient, versus needing reform in order to be effective against future public health threats.

Abstract: Salmonella is a genus of Gram-negative bacteria of the Enterobacteriaceae family. There are two species of Salmonella, Salmonella bongori and Salmonella enterica. Salmonella enterica is further divided into six subspecies with over 2,500 serovars many of which cause infection in humans and other animals. In humans three major diseases are caused by Salmonella: Typhoid fever, non-Typhoidal salmonellosis and invasive non-Typhoidal salmonellosis. Together these have accounted for much human suffering and morbidity over the ages. Historically Typhoid fever has been the most prominent of the three diseases, being associated with wars and turmoil as well as some fascinating human characters, including Almroth Wright, a brilliant but controversial scientist who was vehemently opposed to women’s suffrage, and Mary Malone, the tragic Irish immigrant in New York who was the first identified asymptomatic carrier. Today Salmonella still cause millions of deaths every year, but they are also being developed as novel vaccine platforms and cancer therapeutics.

Abstract: Epigenetics of stress allostasis: somatic mechanisms for germ cell programming of offspring development

Tracy L. Bale, J. Chan, C. Morgan, N.A. Leu, S. Ament, B. Garcia, M. Kane, C.N. Epperson

Parental lifetime exposures to perturbations such as stress, infection, malnutrition, and advanced age have been linked with an increased risk for offspring disease, including a strong association with neurodevelopmental disorders. Our studies have focused on identifying the causal biological mechanisms whereby information in the environment can be transmitted in sperm. In these studies, we demonstrate a causal role for somatic-to-germline transmission of stress information capable of altering fetal neurodevelopment via extracellular vesicles (EVs) in a preclinical model, and we further establish the translational potential of this model in a human cohort. We identified broad histone and transcriptomic alterations in mouse epididymal epithelial cells (EECs) in vivo, with corresponding persistent changes in miRNA and proteomic extracellular vesicle cargo secreted from pure caput EEC populations in vitro. In these studies, the transmission of paternal stress and changes in epigenetic marks only occur following a stress recovery period suggesting a cellular allostatic shift in chromatin programming. Using a transgenic approach, we demonstrated in vivo that the EEC glucocorticoid receptor, a central node of cellular stress mechanisms, serves a key role in this cellular programming where genetic knockdown of this receptor rescued the germline transmission of the offspring stress phenotype. We further established the causal involvement of EEC EVs utilizing intracytoplasmic sperm injection of caput sperm incubated with EVs secreted following stress treatment recovery. Translationally, we have examined similar stress programming changes in human sperm miRNA content. We utilized within and between human subject comparisons of sperm samples and neuropsychiatric perceived stress reports collected repeatedly over six months to identify a distinct miRNA expression pattern from subjects showing a post-stress recovery state.

Abstract: The Heart Healthy Hoods (HHH) project aimed to study the associations between the social and physical features of the urban environment and population cardiovascular health in the city of Madrid. The HHH project characterised Madrid social and physical urban environment in terms of tobacco, alcohol, food and physical activity, applying different quantitative, qualitative, GIS and participatory methodologies. The HHH team included pre-doctoral and post-doctoral researchers, co-investigators and technicians from the fields of public health, epidemiology, primary care, geography, sociology, anthropology, nursing and biology. The HHH project has a unique and high-risk design combining urban exposure measurements with health outcomes data collected from the primary care system in the whole city of Madrid. A longitudinal cohort population-based study with 1720 participants aged 40-75 has been stablished in collaboration with over 400 primary care professionals. A follow up study of the anonymised electronic health records of 1,4 million aged 40-75 Madrid citizens who are primary care users.

Abstract: Some authors presume that responsibility is internal to science (how the scientific community manages its obligations to each other) whereas accountability is external to science (institutional mechanisms of enforcement for behavior). I argue here that this view is mistaken. Both responsibility and accountability have internal and external aspects to their functioning within science. Scientists have responsibilities to each other and hold each other accountable for particular standards. Scientists are also accountable to people and institutional structures outside of the scientific community and have responsibilities to those who are not scientists. Rather than internal vs. external being the appropriate difference maker for accountability and responsibility, it is the nature of the obligation and how it gets enforced that makes the difference. Accountability involves clear standards and clear enforcement mechanisms. It usually involves minimum floors for acceptable actions as well. If one falls below that floor, that clear minimum standard, one can expect to bear the brunt of some negative consequences. Responsibility, on the other hand, can involve both minimum floors and ideals to which one strives, but never reaches. It should shape how one evaluates the choices one makes overall, assessing their worth, with respect to the range of moral obligations one has. Clarifying the difference between responsibility and accountability informs how institutions and individuals should grapple with the complexities of doing science.

Friday, 11 December 2020, 11:00Add to calendarLivestock, the Global Environment, and COVID-19: a reflection on Livestock Systems before and after the PandemicAlessandra Falcucci, Lead Geographic Information Systems analyst, Global Livestock Environmental Assessment Model (GLEAM), Food & Agricultural Organisation of the UN, NOT SPECIFIEDHost: Lucia von Bredowvia Zoom VC, EMBL Heidelberg
Abstract: This talk will explore livestock, the global environment, and COVID-19, and will reflect on livestock systems before and after the pandemic. The sustainability of the livestock systems is the focus of growing public debate, extensively discussed in the media and increasingly on the agenda of high-level political meetings. Over the last 30 years, consumption of meat, milk and eggs in lower middle-income countries has more than tripled. Population growth, urbanisation, income gains and globalisation continue to fuel the “livestock revolution”. According to FAO projections, under a business-as-usual scenario, demand for meat will increase by a further 60% by 2030, compared to 2006, and by over 200% by 2050. This represents a big source of challenges and opportunities on how to reduce environmental impacts, while continuing to meet society’s needs.

Abstract: There is much concern about the public regard for standards and norms of evidence and anxiety that carefully assembled facts and data are becoming seemingly dispensable. In 2016, ‘post-truth’ officially entered the dictionary; in the years since, commentators have worried that societies are no longer interested in the carefully assembled data and conclusions of scientific inquiry. Across Europe, conferences have sprung up among research and regulatory bodies asking how to operate in a world of Facebook filter bubbles and alternative facts. Amid this anxiety, we are in danger of seeing only memes that reinforce it, of believing that people just hear what they are already disposed to hear, that there is no scope for persuasion and factual credibility is pointless. Sense about Science’s experience of working with the public tells a different story - in fact, many different stories, of the public interest in sound science and evidence. That interest in science and evidence is borne out in surveys: scientists are still trusted to tell the truth and are the only group to enjoy consistently strong public trust since the 1970s. In the UK, an Ipsos MORI 2016 poll found that 86% of people want the government to consult experts on complex subjects. Working with the public reminds us that monitoring and analysing are key to public empowerment and democratic accountability; and it expands our imagination about how researchers can collaborate with the public more effectively. Sense about Science's public-led, expert-fed approach has served up some interesting lessons for discussion. The question before the research world therefore is how to equip people to make sense of their natural and social systems: how can we truly embark on those journeys together, with the public and in the public interest?
