ID-Epi Seminars and Events

Infectious Disease Epidemiology, together with the Center for Communicable Disease Dynamics (CCDD), hosts 10 to 20 seminars annually, including the annual Spring Seminar Series, as well as special seminars offered by visiting scholars and collaborators throughout the year.

2016 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 during Spring semester, and lunch is provided.

13th Annual Jonathan Freeman Symposium on Infectious Disease Epidemiology – April 10, 2015

Each year the Freeman Symposium is held in memory of Dr. Jonathan Freeman and his contributions to the Infectious Disease Epidemiology Program.  On April 10, 2015, 16 HSPH faculty, students, and postdocs presented talks and posters highlighting their ongoing research in topics pertaining to Infectious Disease Epidemiology.

Dr. Freeman was 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”.  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.

For those of you who could not attend, below is a link to the recording of the event.
