OUTBREAKS AND KILLER MICROBES, Alexandra M. Levitt, Ph.D

How Scientists Solve Medical Mysteries.  A health scientist for the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) takes us behind-the-scenes of some of the great stories of medical detection of the last 100 years from around the globe. In the process, Dr. Levitt illuminates the methods by which unlikely heroes–research scientists, doctors and veterinarians–solve mysteries in which germs and parasites are the perpetrators and humans the victims.
