Pathogen Trackers: Burning Man Theme Camp

The Pathogen Trackers is a Burning Man theme camp made up of an elite group of scientists, botanists, engineers and research specialists deployed in the field for real-time sampling and treatment of pathogens capable of entering their host and evading immediate destruction by the host’s immune system. The Pathogen Trackers camp is governed by the PCC aka the Pathogen Control Center.  The PPC is a non-profit organization responsible for the evaluation and monitoring of non-bacterial, infectious diseases.

“At a time when the inhabitants of Black Rock City are in need of food and water, and shelter from the midday sun’s relentless heat, our camp is here to help provide sustenance to the people of the playa.”

– Captain
