Crossing Borders

Map: Crossing Borders

Caption: From a saltwater bay in Maryland, to microorganisms in the Indian Ocean, to rain in South America, research on cholera has surmounted national borders and the distinctions between disciplines. Our understanding of the disease's complex interactions with the web of life and the global environment could ultimately enhance our ability to predict its course.

Further descriptions: Red Arrows point from U.S. to India, to Peru with the respective nations highlighted in red. The borders of countries are in green against a black background
