At the 2013 BIO International Convention, Mundel discusses biotech start-ups and how biotech and technology can help meet needs in developing countries. The Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 (GBD 2010) is the largest ever systematic effort to describe the global distribution and causes of a wide array of major diseases, injuries, and health risk factors. The results show that infectious diseases, maternal and child illness, and malnutrition now cause fewer deaths and less illness than they did twenty years ago.
