Spring Seminar Series
The Spring 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. Students and postdocs are invited to request meetings with speakers whose interests coincide with their own.
The series is co-sponsored by the HSPH Infectious Disease Epidemiology Program and the Center for Communicable Disease Dynamics.
Seminars are held weekly on Mondays, 12:30-1:30 pm during Spring semester. The seminars are held in the Kresge Building, room 907 (Epidemiology Library). Lunch is provided.
The most recent season concluded on May 7, 2012. Click here for details.

Thursday gatherings at the Penguin
The second Thursday of each month during the school year finds students, staff and faculty from ID-Epi and Causal Inference gathering for an informal networking event.
The event takes place at Penguin Pizza, located at 735 Huntington Avenue, from 5:00 – 7:00 pm.
New students are encouraged to attend to learn more about ID Epi and get to know other students, staff and faculty.
ID-Epi interdisciplinary concentration hosts an annual symposium in memory of Dr. Jonathan Freeman, an esteemed member of the faculty in the Department of Epidemiology from 1990 until he passed away in 2000. Dr. Freeman was instrumental in creating and leading the interdisciplinary concentration in infectious diseases at HSPH. He taught and designed courses on the investigation of infectious disease outbreaks and on the transmission dynamics of infectious diseases–promoting an active interest in infectious disease epidemiology during a period in which it was “out of fashion”. Members of Dr. Freeman’s family–many of them also public health professionals–are invited to attend the event and witness his legacy here at HSPH.
The symposium features talks by postdocs and students–as well as faculty and other affiliates–about the ongoing research in infectious disease at the school. Talks are followed by a poster session and reception to further highlight the work being carried out here.
