We’re excited to announce that Tara C. Smith, Ph.D. is the newest member of the Zombie Research Society Advisory Board. Smith is an Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at the University of Iowa specializing in infectious disease. She’s also got zombies on the brain (If you don’t believe us see pic above).
Smith’s research centers on emerging diseases, particularly those which originate in animals. So if the coming zombie pandemic starts in our furry or feathered friends and jumps to humans, she’ll be the first to know. She’s also highly interested in zombie preparedness, making her a valued addition to the team.
Let’s all give Professor Smith a great big ZRS welcome!
