New AI collaboration aims to rank viral families with greatest pandemic threat

CEPI teams up with UC Davis to expand “SpillOver” database to identify virus families most likely to emerge as the next Disease X with pandemic potential

CEPI, the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, and University of California, Davis announced a new partnership agreement to advance and expand the application of “SpillOver”, a viral ranking app that directly compares the risks posed by hundreds of animal and human viruses. The database ranks hundreds of virus, host, and environmental risk factors to identify viruses with the highest risk of zoonotic spillover from wildlife to humans and to highlight those most likely to spread and cause human outbreaks.
