Professor Dr. Ken F.S. Shortridge
Emeritus Professor Kennedy Shortridge is a pioneer in researching the potentially deadly disease "bird flu " , leading to the establishment of preparation systems to deal with future outbreaks. Professor Shortridge, a University of Queensland graduate, moved to Hong Kong in 1972 after completing his PhD at The University of London in 1971, commencing studies in 1975 into how avian influenza viruses spread to humans. His studies drew attention to the importance of domestic poultry and pigs as the most likely sources of virus for humans. His findings, including the hypothesis in 1982 of southern China's role as an epicentre for the emergence of pandemic influenza viruses, enabled the development of surveillance and preparation systems for future outbreaks. Dr. Shortridge receiving a life-Fellowship from WIF Member Dr. Tsui Lap-Chee, Vice-Chancellor of Hong Kong University October 2005 Professor Shortridge's work was crucial to the early detection of the H5N1 "bird flu " outbreak in 1997, potentially saving incalculable lives. Professor Shortridge recently retired from HKU`s Department of Microbiology. Professor Shortridge's vital work earned him a Prince Mahidol Award in Public Health in 1999 for services to the global community toward the control of "bird flu ".

Presently the WIF is trying to raise funds so that Prof. Ken Shortridge, a WIF Fellow, can effectively deal with the enormous threat to humankind from Avian flu.
For Prof. Shortridge knows more than anyone else in the world today that there are major chinks in the armour where this horrendous killer disease can escape. For your information Ken Shortridge was the person who first identified that a mutant strain of bird flu had jumped from animal into humans in Hong Kong in 1987 and thereby through his rapid work stopped a pandemic in its tracks, saving millions of lives in the process. Having been advisor to the WHO and NIH etc, he knows what is drastically lacking with the present measures to contain the disease.
