About the 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 at 1pm ET between February 10th and May 12th with the exception of March 17th. Recordings of presentations will be made publicly available unless indicated otherwise on the event page.
