ID Epi Spring Seminar Series 2024

Banner for the Spring 2024 Infectious Disease Epidemiology Seminar Series

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, unless otherwise noted, at 1pm ET between February 2nd and May 9th with the exception of March 14th (spring break). Please note that our first seminar will be held on Friday, February 2nd. Recordings of presentations will be made publicly available on this page each week.

The seminar will be hybrid in-person/Zoom. The in-person portion will be held in either Kresge G2 or G3, and will be indicated for each speaker. Attending virtually requires registration with the Zoom link at the top of the page.

Below are the speakers for Part 1 only. To see the Part 2 speakers, please click through the registration link.
