On June 11-12, 2018, the Forum on Microbial Threats at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine organized a 1.5-day public workshop to assess the current understanding of the interaction of infectious disease threats with economic activity and suggest new areas of research. This workshop built on prior work of the Forum and aimed to build more mutual understanding between those in the economic world and those with public health and clinical experience. Through multisectoral participation, topics in the workshop identified potential knowledge gaps, research priorities for further exploration, and strategies to advance the field in understanding the economics of microbial threats.
