summarized, high-level description of complex information

program overview: a visual walk-through of the three key technical areas explored with the goal of expanding pathogen treatment options.

Technical area 1: perform animal studies to examine intra- and inter-species differences in host fitness; identify sub-populations and species that are tolerant to infection.

Technical area 2: define and characterize the basis for tolerance across multiple biological scales, e.g., species, tissues and cells.

Technical area 3: recreate tolerance mechanisms in susceptible animal populations.
