April 14th @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Talk title: Helminth-microbe coinfection: insights from a natural system
Presenter:Vanessa Ezenwa, Professor at Yale University, Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.
Dr. Vanessa Ezenwa is a Professor of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at Yale University. She received a BA in Biology from Rice University, and PhD in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Princeton University. Her research focuses on the ecology of infectious diseases in wild animal populations, with a specific focus on linking processes across scales of biological organization. Work in Dr. Ezenwa’s lab combines field studies with molecular and theoretical approaches to address key questions about the dynamics of infectious agents in natural systems.
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.
