ID Epi Spring Seminar Series 2023

Banner for the Infectious Disease Epidemiology Seminar Series in Spring 2023

Each spring, the CCDD hosts a seminar series featuring experts presenting the latest research in infectious disease epidemiology and modeling. The ID Epi Seminar Series aims to bring in speakers from various disciplines within infectious disease epidemiology, broadly defined to include the population biology of pathogens and other allied topics. Seminars will be held on Thursdays at 1pm ET between February 10th and May 12th with the exception of March 17th. Recordings of presentations will be made publicly available on this page each week. Journal club readings can be found here.

The seminar will be hybrid in-person/Zoom. The in-person portion will be held in Kresge G2. Attending either in-person or virtually requires registration with the Zoom link at the top of the page.
