Dr. Khan's professional career has focused on emerging infectious diseases, bioterrorism and global health security. He founded the Public Health Matters blog and has been personally engaged in guinea worm and polio eradication activities. While directing global infectious disease activities, he designed the laboratory component of the CDC's field epidemiology and training program. He also helped design and implement the CDC component of the $1.2 billion, 5-year President’s Malaria Initiative. He co-founded a novel center at the CDC to champion a one health strategy and ensure health security from a myriad of zoonotic, vector-borne, and food-borne infectious diseases.
