  • The Randall Packard Lab investigates topics in the field of the history of medicine. Our current work seeks to explore the global history of dengue fever. Research is focused on the emergence and global spread of dengue as well as efforts to understand and control the disease. Part of our research involves establishing a better understanding of the complex biological, economic, environmental and social conditions that enabled the disease to rapidly expand worldwide during the 20th century.
