Prior to joining IDRI in 2013, Shilah worked at Portland State University as a Postdoctoral Scientist studying the metabolic pathways and enzymes involved in the generation of natural products (drug discovery) and olefins (biofuels development). Advancements in microscopy were essential to the early study of infectious diseases. It is a disease that has plagued humans for more than 4000 years, and yet many remain unaware of some of the most common facts about leprosy. Meningococcemia can lead to complications such as massive adrenal hemorrhage; DIC; arthritis; heart problems such as pericarditis and myocarditis; neurologic problems such as deafness and peripheral neuropathy; and peripheral gangrene. 14 In epidemic settings in Third-World countries, case-fatality rates as high as 70% have been recorded.

Viral factors she is evaluating include viral load in blood or respiratory secretions, strain type, and shedding duration. Cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) produces skin ulcers, sometimes as many as 200, that cause disability and extensive scarring. The bursa of Fabricius is the main organ affected, showing swelling from edema and hemorrhage during the early stages of the disease and then shrinking (atrophy) 7-8 days following infection.

Some infectious diseases are contagious, which means that the sick plant, animal, or person can get other things sick. Disease-causing microbes—what we can’t see can hurt us. The impact of migration-associated changes in global infectious disease epidemiology will have immediate and direct implications for those who provide clinical infectious disease and laboratory diagnostic services in ways not traditionally considered.
