Dr. Peter J. Hotez is a scientist, pediatrician, and advocate in the fields of global health, vaccinology and tropical disease control. He is also the founding dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine and Director of the Texas Children’s Hospital Center for Vaccine Development. Hotez’s nonstop work to develop one of the COVID-19 vaccines and his public advocacy for vaccinations during the pandemic inform The Deadly Rise of Anti-Science: A Scientist’s Warning. This book tracks the growth of the anti-vaccine movement as a dangerous and prominent part of American politics — a movement which cost hundreds of thousands of American lives during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.
